I know for instance
But how would i deduce the first two?

These symbols mean nothing if you don't give them a meaning by defining them.
Well i, j and k are the basis that translate to x, y, z.
a_r and a_phi are the basis for polar coordinates i believe.
Then your problem makes no sense. Your , , and are three dimensional while and are two dimensional. You will have to complete that by using cylindrical coordinates ir spherical coordinates.
