Question

the pressure of liquid column ________ with the depth of column.


Solution

Dear 
Student,the pressure of liquid column "increases"_ with the depth of column.

If you want mathematical relation ship.
That is given below.

We know that pressure is force acting on a unit surface area P=F/A.

In our case the force is due to the weight of water, which is F=mg.

A=area of cross section of the water container.

h=height of water column (depth).

Volume of water= Axh.

ρ =density of water=m/(Axh).

P=mg/A=(ρAhg) / A=ρgh.

Therefore P=ρgh.
