For aerodynamic objects falling short distances, there will not be much air resistance. The only force involved will be gravity and therefore we would need to assume the terminal speed of the falling object. If a Baseball, for example, the terminal speed would be 131 feet per second so that a distance of 324 feet the ball would take 2.47 seconds. If the ball is Golf ball, the terminal speed would be 98.4 feet per second making the drop time 3.29 seconds. As a matter of interest, a vertical skydiver would take 1.16 seconds to cover the same distance.
