Weight of a freely falling body

Share with:


What is the weight of a body having a mass of 10 kg if it is falling freely?

Answer: The apparent weight of a freely falling body is zero.

When a body falls freely, it is falling with an acceleration =g. Thus the entire gravitational force acting on it is utilized in accelerating it and hence its weight is not felt.
