I assume that you mean what will the velocity of an object be at impact when dropped from a height of 30 feet?

Using h = Vo(t) + 32.2(t^2)/2 and assuming zero velocity when dropped,

30 = (0(t + 32.2(t^2)/2

60 = 32.2t^2

t^2 = 1.863 making t = 1.365 sec.

From Vf = Vo + 32.2t, the velocity at impact becomes Vf = 32.2(1.365) = 43.95ft./sec.
