    No, they do not (assuming you do not count air resistance due to the object shape).

    Want to try it out. take a large marble and a small marble and stand up on a ladder. Drop them both at the same time. They will hit the ground at the same time.

    No! has to do with mass.. not weight. envision an orange and a bowling ball.. drop them both and they hit the ground at the same time.

    they fall at the same speed as each other unles there is wind resistance which is nearly unavoidable

    NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT. galileo proved this off of the leaning tower of pisa (according to legend), according to the laws of physics if two objects are released at the same time regardless of their weight they will land at exactly the same time. the only exception (why an open sheet of paper and a canonball) dont land at the same time is air resistance. if there were no air resitance (such as in a vaccum or on the moon) a feather and a car would land at the same time if dropped at the same time.

    No. Everything falls at the exact same rate. C=

    If you dropped a pea and a bowling ball at the same time, they would both hit the ground first.

    Now things like leaves and feathers SEEM to fall more slowly because the air and wind carry them, but if there was no air or wind they would also fall at the same rate.

    No no no no no no no.

    Mass has nothing to do with the rate of fall. The resistance to air will affect the rate of fall in an atmosphere, but the astronauts dropped a feather and a hammer on the moon at the same time and both hit the ground at the same time.

    Hope this helps,

    nope, but an object with greater face surface will fall slower because it's catching more air.

    Galileo famously demonstrated that this is not the case when he dropped a small lead ball and a large one from the Tower of Pisa. Of course, these balls had the same density. He would not have put a pigeon feather up against either lead ball.

    Yet, he was working through air resistance. If he had been able to drop both in a vacuum, the feather and the lead would have struck the ground simultaneously.

    galileo galilei, Galileo is said to have dropped balls of different masses from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to demonstrate that their time of descent was independent of their mass (excluding the limited effect of air resistance).

    I love how the people who immediately said "yes" have no explanation. It's hilarious.

    Assuming you are referring to a freefall scenario, No. Gravity is constant on all objects regardless of mass and weight

    No. All objects fall at the same rate. It's the resistance that slows the item down.

    Drop a bowling ball and a tennis ball at the same time, they will reach the ground at the same time.

    Yes, assuming that the air-resistance while falling is the same.

    For example, a one lb. weight and a 10 lb. weight will reach the ground at the same time. But a one lb. weight and a one pound bail of cotton will land at different time.This is because the cotton bail has more exposed surface area and will fall at slightly slower rate due to air resistance.

    This is because the newton's equations for a moving or falling objects do not consider the weight or density of the object.

    In usual notations:

    V= u + a*t
    V^2 -U^2 = 2* g*h
    S = u*t + 1/2*a*(t^2)

    Where a = acceleration and g = gravitational acceleration.
