Zero gravity does not affect inertia. The inertia of an object is an inherent property of the object and is directly proportional to the object's mass.

It doesn't. Inertia will still depend only on the mass.

They would not affect Newton's laws in the slightest.

### What force will not effect inertia if its force is zero?

Force does not affect inertia in general. Inertia can basically be identified with the mass.

### In 0 gravity the mass of an object comes to be not defines than how can the mass of an object come constant everywhere?

Mass does not depend on gravity. At zero gravity the object will have the same mass as at a higher gravity. What changes is the object's weight. The fact that the object still has mass can be ascertained from its inertia - it will take a force to make it move, or to stop it.Mass does not depend on gravity.

### How many pounds does a 2 ton bus weigh with no gravity?

A two-ton bus would have zero weight in zero gravity, since weight is dependent on the force of gravity. However, gravity has an infinite range, so gravity would only actually be zero at an infinite distance from the source of the gravity.

### Inertia will not be affected when this type of force is zero.?

Inertia will not be affected when "net" or "net force" is zero.

### How does zero gravity affect someone in space?

with no gravity in space you essentially can fly around. you weight a 1/3 of your normal weight on the moon.

### How much zero gravity is there in space?

Zero! that's why it is called zero gravity!
