							Weight of the free falling object is equal to the mass (m) of the object times the free-fall acceleration (g) on that surface.
So, W = mg
The weight of the body would be zero where, there is no gravity (g=0) and the effect will be achieved only in deep space, far from any star or planet.
Yes, weight of on object will depend on the choice of the reference system.
The free-fall acceleration is the characteristic of the reference system on which the weight of the object is measured. Thus, weight of on object will depend on the choice of the reference system.
