Weight of an object is the gravitational force exerted on the object by the Earth’s gravitational field.

An object is only truely weightless when there is no gravitational force acting on it. (Only true when object is infinitely far away from other masses where no gravitational field acts on it)

An object is considered to be apparently weightless when it exerts no force on its support.
