In a falling head permeability test on a soil, the time taken for the head to fall from h_{0 }to h_{1} is t. The test is repeated with same initial head h_{0}, the final head h' is noted in time t/2. Which one of the following equations gives the relation between h', h_{0 }and h_{1}?

Which one of the following expressions represents the shear strength of soil at point X? Angle of shear resistance of soil is ϕ and symbols γ_{w'} γ_{sat'} γ_{sub' }γ_{dry} stand for unit weights of water, saturated soil, submerged soil and dry soil respectively.
A stratified soil deposit has three layers of thicknesses: z_{1} = 4, z_{2}  1, z_{3} = 2 units and the corresponding permeabilities of k_{1} = 2, k_{2} = 1 and k_{3} = 4 units, respectively. The average permeability perpendicular to the bedding planes will be
In the case of stratified soil layers, the best equation that can be adopted for computing the pressure distribution is
