Consider a long, convex, homogenous cylinder with horizontal axis and with a planar convex body K as transversal section. Suppose the cylinder is immersed in water and let $$K_w$$ K w be the wet part of K. In this paper we study some properties of the locus of the centroid of $$K_w$$ K w and prove an analogous result to Klamkin–Flanders’ theorem when the locus is a circle. We also study properties of bodies floating at equilibrium when either the origin or the centroid of the body is pinned at the water line. In some sense this is the floating body problem for a density varying continuously. Finally, in the last section we give an isoperimetric type inequality for the perimeter of the centroid body (defined by C. M. Petty in Pacific J Math 11:1535–1547, 1961) of convex bodies in the plane.
