Why will a sheet of paper fall slower than one that is crumpled into a ball?

A sheet of paper falls slower then the one crumpled into a ball because the surface area of the ball is much lower than that of the sheet. Thus the upward force exerted by air on the sheet is much as compared to the one exerted on the ball. Hence the sheet falls slower.
