Step 1

Hello. Since your question has multiple sub-parts, we will solve up to (f) sub-parts for you. If you want remaining sub-parts to be solved, then please resubmit the whole question and specify those sub-parts you want us to solve.

(a) According to the question, the acceleration acts on the coin relative due to the ground is an acceleration due to Earth’s gravity (g). Since, there is no component of g in the x direction, hence the component of coin’s acceleration with respect to ground along x-axis is zero.

Step 2

(b) The acceleration due to gravity acts in the negative y-direction. Hence, hence the component of coin’s acceleration with respect to ground along y-axis is:

Step 3

(c) Since, there is no component of g in the z direction, hence the component of c...
