Question

What is apparent weights?

​​​​​


Solution

Apparent is derived from the word appear.

So, apparent weight means the weight which appears. For example, if you submerge a body in water and weigh it using a weighing machine, the weight which would appear on the weighing machine would be the apparent weight.

But actually, the weight would be less than the actual gravitational force acting on the body. This reduced weight would be called the apparent weight.
