In the absence of air, all objects fall with the same acceleration. That means that at the same time after the drop, all objects are moving at the same speed.

Do different shaped objects fall at different speeds with the same weight?

yes, they fall at different speeds because of friction due to air molecules. In a vacuum they would fall at the same speed.

What do you use to see if all object fall at the same speed?

yes, all the objects fall at same speed if we neglect air resistence but they appear to be falling at different speeds due to air resistence.

Do all objects fall to earth at the same time?

Gravity causes all objects to fall to earth at the same time. (some objects do not like paper and yarn because of air resistance. but if you block the air resistance by placing it on a book and dropping, it will fall at the same time. Or if you reduce surface area) Gravity causes all objects to fall with an acceleration of 9.8m/s*2

When is an objects to be in free fall?

In free fall, the force of gravity alone causes an object to accelerate in the downward direction.

Do objects that are the same size fall at the same rate?

Yes. And objects with different sizes, masses, and weights also fall the same.
