If a person have increased body weight (from 70 to 100 kg for example, 1.80m), does the pressure in legs vessels due to Gravity will be higher? What is the formula to calculate this? The only thing i found is 0,77 mmHg/cm * cm below heart, so there is no dependence on body weight?

Maybe. Maybe not. There are many variables at play here.

That's an interesting question. However, I do not know the answer.
