Dear Student

The forces that act on the bucket are as follows:-
(i) The pressure of water contained in it, exerted on its wall and on base of the bucket.
(ii) Force of gravity by earth.
(iii) The water is contained in a bucket and the pressure of force is exerted on the wall of the bucket, which is sufficient to take it as a force.
As the bucket is held in my hand, so I overcome the force of gravity of the earth. That is why these forces do not bring a change in the state of motion.

​Thanks
