    Answers:

    Soil pressure increases with depth due to the overburden or self-weight of the soil and due to loads imposed upon the soil.

    For example, the pressure variation below the depth of soil is linear and the relation is given by pressure = unit wt * depth. As depth increases, there will be a linear increase in the soil pressure
