Your solution is incorrect. What do the symbols in the equation v=d/t represent?

Pardon me if I am wrong but knowing mass in this case is useless or is it time?

If we are ignoring drag (which I am assuming that we are), then you are indeed correct. The mass of the object is superfluous in this case.
