Ok, I've come across this problem in fluid statics, but seem to be getting the integration wrong:

"A semicircular plane is submerged vertically in a homogeneous liquid with its diameter d at the free surface. At what depth s is the centre of pressure?"

The answer should be

s = (3*pi*d) / 32

Any ideas?
