Fluid Statics Problem

  1. Feb 6, 2009 #1
    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?
