Dear Chilukuri

tami taken to fall a distance 5 m by first stone

5=1/2 *g*t2

t=1 sec

let hight of tower is h

so motion of first stone

 h= 1/2 * 10 * t2              .....................1

motion of second stone

h-25 =1/2 * 10 *(t-1)2                   ...............2

put value of h from equation 1

 t=3 sec

and h=45 m
