Exercise 7: Determine the equations for a simple rectilinear coordinate system from governing equations for mass and momentum.

a) Look at the governing equations for mass, momentum, T, s, , and write down the versions for a simple rectilinear coordinate system (hint: ; put , ).

b) Then repeat this for a spherical coordinate system (hint: , where R is the radius of the Earth, is the latitude and is the longitude.
