Can someone answer this question?
When a spring balance with some mass 'm' which is suspended from it is allowed to freely fall,what would be the reading on the spring balance?

Hey folks! I looked into many books and finally found the answer.The actual answer is 0.This is because reading in the spring balance=macceleration(weight).Since net acceleration, i.e.,g-g=0,so mass mg=0.Therefore the weight of the object is zero and hence,the reading is zero
