What is the difference between a lightweight process and a heavyweight process ? What makes a process heavy or light ?

Thanks

What have you found as the difference in your research? Did you try googling or looking up the terms in the wikipedia?

You'll learn and remember the answer better if you do some reasearch yourself first, rather than just sit back and waiting for someone to provide the answer here.
