No, $\xi$ and $\eta$ don't have dimensions. But their derivatives do of course. So $\xi_x$, $\eta_x$, etc will have dimensions (1/m or 1/mm). 1 point bonus.




Try again now.






The problem with your logic is that $\partial \xi_x / \partial \xi$ is not zero because $\xi_x$ can vary along the the $\xi$ coordinate. Similarly, $\partial \eta_x / \partial \eta$ is also not zero because $\eta_x$ can vary along $\eta$. Good question, 2 points bonus.
