Continuing with the Fido series...

Fido has a ball. He wants to calculate velocity and altitude of the ball once sees a free fall, from his hand, under the effect of gravity of the earth. For simplicity, he wants to have all the computation under the assumption that there is no resistance of air to the ball under free fall. Fido throws the ball from various points on a building. Initial velocity of the ball is always zero.
Compute for initial altitudes 60, 40, 30, 20, 5 meters the velocity and the altitude of the ball at times 5, 10, 15, 19 seconds once the ball is dropped.
