When a Leaf Falls What Force Opposes Gravity?

Answer

When a lift is falling through air as a result of gravity there is air resistance. As the leaf falls through air, it applies a force on the air particles below it which also offer an opposite but equal force to the leaf motion. Due to the viscous nature of the air molecules they will easily give way so their resistance will be less compared to the pull of gravity.
