I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with this problem. My exam is in 3 days and I don't understand how to do this problem!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A grinding stone of radius 10 cm ( I=0,2 kg*m^2) turns at a rate of 200 RPM. A tool is leaned against the circumference of the grinding stone with a force of 50N of radial direction. The kinetic coefficient of friction is equal to 0,6.

(A) What power is necessary to maintain the grinding stone in rotation at a constant angular velocity?

The answer is supposed to be 62,8 W and I know I have to use torque but I really don't know how to do it
