Let H be the tower heiight and g the acceleration of gravity (9.8 m/s^2). Let t be the time it takes to fall the full tower height. Here is what you know:

H = (g/2) t^2

H-44.1 = (g/2)(t-1)^2

Solve those two equations TOGETHER for the height H. It is easiest to solve for t first

44.1 = (g/2)*[t^2 - t^2 + 2t -1)

= 4.9 [2t - 1)

2t -1 = 9

t = 5 seconds

H = 4.9*25 = 122.5 m

(b) Vfinal^2 = 2 g H
