### Question

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

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

#### The correct answer is: the normal force is zero
