Question

A person sitting in a chair in a satellite feels weightless because

  1. the earth does not attract the objects in a satellite
  2. the normal force by the chair on the person balances the earth's attraction.
  3. the normal force is zero
  4. the person in satellite is not accelerated.

The correct answer is: the normal force is zero
