Why are objects Weightless in freefall?

Weight is a measure of the "downward" force an object exerts on the earth. So if an object is in freefall, it does not exert "downward" force. Think of it like standing on your bathroom scale. If you are not falling, you have a weight, ie. there is pressure exerted down on the scale. If you are freefalling and standing on your scale, the scale will read 0, ie you are not putting pressure on the scale. Just don't get confused between weight and mass
