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