In free fall, the only force acting on an object is gravity. In free fall there is NO air resistance. In free fall, all objects fall at the same rate of acceleration regardless of their mass.

You'd think the elephant would fall faster; however, that is incorrect. Why? Because Acceleration is net Force divided by mass. If objects are in free fall, they will all fall at an average of 9.8 #m#/#s^2#.
