    Solution:

    A heavy object seems lighter in water due to the buoyant force.
    Buoyant force:
    “The buoyant force is the ascending force exerted on an object entirely or partly immersed in a liquid. This ascending force is also called Upthrust.”
     Due to the buoyant force, a body submerged incompletely or entirely in a fluid appears to lose its weight, i.e. appears to be lighter.
    Fb= -ρgV
    Where Fb=buoyant force 
    ρ=fluid density
    g=acceleration due to gravity
    V=volume of the fluid 
    Here we could see that the buoyant force is directly proportional to the fluid density.
