Normal/Tangential coord

  1. Using normal and tangential coord the the tangential acceleration of any point on earth is 0, correct?

  3. Normal and tengential, coord? I don't quite know what you mean by that, but you are right that since the earth spins with a constant velocity, there will be no tangential acceleration.
