Two identical blocks are tied together with a string and placed along the same radius of a turntable that is spinning about its center. The inner block is 4 cm from the center and the outer block is 6 cm from the center. The coefficient of static friction between the turntable and the blocks is µs = 0.71, and the string is taut.

a) What is the maximum angular frequency such that neither block slides?

I've spent like 3 hours on this problem - drawing free body diagrams for both blocks, and trying to solve for angular frequency... no luck....please help!
