Dear Abhijeet,

            The weight of the object is dependent on the gravitational pull measured by acceleration due to gravity of a planet on which it is measured (which depends on the mass and radius of the planet) as W= m*g. So, in a satellite its value is zero so weight of the object is also zero. Thus when we go into space in a satellite we experience weightlessness.
