Expert Answer:

You can verify it experimentally by weighing the object first in air.

Then it is submerged fully in water and its weight is again noted.

Take a body whose density is more than water so that it sinks in water.

The difference in weights is noted.

The volume of the body is measured. Take a body of symmetric shape whose volume is easy to calculate.

Then you will find that the loss in weight is equal to the volume of the body times the density of water.
