    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A grinder consists of a 6.01 kg steel block on a 1.46 m long arm that spins around a table. If the angular acceleration is -1.62 rads/s2, what is the coefficient of friction between the steel block and the table?

    I'm having trouble with attempting the question, especially drawing free body diagram for this problem.
