A piece of metal an a non - metallic stone is allowed to fall freely near the surface of the earth.Which of them will reach the ground earlier and why?

all the substances falling freely have same acceleration ...acceleration due to gravity.but the air resistances wil be different for different substances so the time ctaken to fall on earth will vary. This air resistance will depend on certain factors such as density of the substance etc.
