I asked a friend, who is an English major, whether who or whom should be used in a certain sentence.

He said, "I ain't sure."

Oh, that's an easy one actually.

The grammatical-term answer: "who" is the subject of the sentence, "whom" is an object (direct or indirect).

The comprehensible answer: use "who" where "he" fits, and "whom" where "him" fits.

So far it's the same as "they" versus "them".

The common answer: use "who".
