Hi, I'm having problems with one of my homework assignments on equilibrium. I'm fine with all the calculations once I draw up a free body diagram but I'm not particulary good at visualizing the problem etc. Can anyone help me out with the diagram?

The question is:

A block of mass m is lying on a rough table, the coefficient of friction being µ. One end of an elastic string of modulus λ and natural length l is attached to the block. The other end of the string is pulled in a direction away from the block so that the string is at an angle of 45° to the horizontal.

Thanks for reading!
