The soil profile shown consists of dry sand (4-m thick) which overlies a layer of clay (3-m thick). Ground water table is located at the interface of the sand and clay.

How many meters must the ground water table rise to decrease the effective stress by 14 kPa, at the bottom of the clay layer?
If the water table rises to the top of the ground surface, what is the change in the effective stress (in kPa) at the bottom of the clay layer?
Compute the effective stress at the bottom of the clay layer in kPa.
