Why would you weigh more in a vacuum?

Answer:

Vacuum doesn’t mean outer space. If you weigh yourself in vacuum on the surface of earth, you will weigh more because of the absence of Buoyancy. In the presence of air, weight decreases by the weight of displaced air.

Remember, you will lose more weight if weighed in water or a denser medium
