I've tried doing research on this and there are some similar questions. However, they have slightly different scenarios and to make sure I understand things perfectly, I wanted to word it into my own words and confirm that my thought process is correct. I am just getting back into physics after a decade of not doing anything remotely related, so I'd like to make sure I'm not confusing things.
We have two objects that are the exact same size and shape. Let's call them A and B.
A is twice the weight of B.
Both are dropped from an airplane at the same time.
Am I correct to say that since B is half the weight of A, it will reach its terminal velocity much sooner, producing 0 acceleration from there on.
A, on the other hand, will continue accelerating until the positive force from the air resistance equals its weight, at which point it reaches its terminal velocity and 0 acceleration.
A will have a higher terminal velocity and reach the ground sooner than B, because A was accelerating for a longer period of time.
EDIT: Changed from mass to weight, due to the fact that weight is the force pushing those two objects towards the Earth.
