    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Calculate depth below the water surface of the centre of pressure of the water pressure acting on the submerged triangular lamina.
    The triangle is 2m below the surface and is shaped like this:
    Hypotenuse is sqrt(13)
    Other sides are 2 and 3, where the side with length 2 is parallel to water surface.

    2. Relevant equations
    Relatively new stuff and finding difficult to understand so no equations unfortunately.
