How do you calculate the velocity of a quarter dropped from a tower after 10 seconds?

It depends -- there's terminal velocity, peak velocity, average velocity, etc....what exactly are you looking for?

im looking for average velocity

The formula for average velocity is:

position2 - position1

-------------------------

time2 - time1

It looks like there is not enough information to figure out the average velocity of the quarter. You would need the height of the tower to fill in all the variables to successfully solve the equation.
