In general they have the same meaning, and are interchangeable. In certain specific contexts, 'depend on' is used, for example, when analysing the relationship between factors in a process or equation : The amount of heat generated depends on the amount of fuel available for combustion The rate of interest on your investment will depend on the length of the term for which you invest it In the equation y depends on x cubed
