Which one is correct, 'at tomorrow morning' or 'on tomorrow morning'?

In your sentences, on is the correct preposition & in is the incorrect one. This is a bit tricky.

"He passed away on March 5" is correct. "He passed away in the morning" is also correct. However, in your sentence, "the morning of" functions as an adjectival phrase modifying March 5, so "He passed away on the morning of March 5" is also correct.

If we turn things around a bit it may help to lớn make things a bit more clear: since "he passed away on March 5 in the morning" is correct, it follows that "he passed away in the morning on March 5" is also correct.

You say "in the morning/in the afternoon/in the evening". These indications of time stvà alone & the concept is in + period of time.

It is another thing for "on the morning of the first of May". Here the concept of date/on this day prevails và has become the accepted expression.

He passed away in the morning on March 5 - is correct.

We use in for mornings, months và years, and on for dates. We use on for the days (Monday, Tuesday...etc). We use at for time (At 7 o"cloông xã in the morning on Sunday in March...for example).

Wtienmadaichien.com, it seems none of the answers explain why is it lượt thích that, what are the rules, what"s the usage, and no-one provided references. I will elaborate & will post my investigation, as I did here at ELU.

Just to cut the long story short, for this specific case: "on" is the correct preposition and "in" is the incorrect one.

"The morning of" functions as an adjectival phrase clarifying the specific time và date "on March 5". "On" is used because it belongs to the date here, specific part of the day.

The normal language constructions would be:

on + date (with the year or without it) or day of the weekin + morning, afternoon, evening (in the morning, in the evening)

But, when we talk about a specific morning, afternoon, or when we describe the part of the day it should be used with on:

on the morning of ,

You can"t say "I will see you on the morning" - it"s incorrect.

here"s the reference for more examples: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/at-on-and-in-time

In or on?

We use in with morning, afternoon, evening and night, but we use on when we talk about a specific morning, afternoon, etc., or when we describe the part of the day.
