In a bucket, a mug full of water appears lighter when it is under water than when it is outside the water because water exerts an upward force on the object immersed in it. Thus, the upward force acting on an object immersed in a liquid results in an apparent loss of weight, making the object to float on its surface. This upward force is called buoyant force or upthrust.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
