How would one calculate the drag on a projectile (in this case a 1cm

The vertical drop, initial velocity, distance, and time (taken to travel distance) where measured.

I want to say that I could compare these experimental drop (bellow hight that projectile was shot from) to the theoretical SUVAT drop (which assumes no air resistance) and find the drag experienced by the cube that way, however I am unable to find the proper equation / an example of this.

Also, using the drag coefficient of a cube/square won't work because the cube was erratically spinning on multiple (axis).

Any help is appreciated.
