Q: What is the Reasons For Weightlessness ?

Solution: 1. Any artificial satellite itself in a state of weightlessness condition becomes total earth gravitational force is balanced by centripetal force in order to orbiting the satellite in the given stable orbital.

2. Weightlessness conditions for any body placed inside the satellite can be employed in the following ways :

(a) Centrifugal force experienced by inside the body is neutralized by earth gravitational force.

(b) There is no normal reaction experienced by body from the surface to satellite because it is treated as point mass.

(c) Any body having zero relative acceleration with respect to satellite.
