If earth's gravity disappeared, all laws of physics would have been changed and life as we know it would end. Objects would be launched from earth, and in fact the entire earth would fly apart. The atmosphere would be flung into space, and everything else would be flying out behind it. In short, a very quick death for all life forms. Fortunately, universal gravitation is not something that can be turned on and off, so the occurrence is virtually impossible.

What if earth had no gravity?

If Earth suddenly lost its gravitational pull, all of the material making up the planet would be flung off into space. The debris would still orbit the sun, because it would still have its gravity, but the particles would create a pseudo ring around the sun of earth bits and water (the water would likely stay together due to its intermolecular forces). Earth would instantly become nothing
