If I’m on zero G, will my organs also be floating around like I am?

In: Physics

Not really, no. Your organs are attached inside your body by tissue to keep them from falling out of place, lets say during a somersault, or when you change positions (like standing to laying). However zero g can have an affect on them because they have to work harder or would become lighter and function with less effort.

Other than inside your stomach where food goes and will have stomach acid, the rest of your insides are under some form of pressure or tension and only slightly affected by gravity. But the stomach is sealed from the esophagus so nothing actually goes up. The small bones in your inner ear I guess are the only parts that will cause issues such as dizziness lmand trouble balancing later.
