The first thing I tried was setting up a diffeq:

n''=GM/(h-n)^2

Where G is the gravitational constant, M is the mass of the object, h is the initial height, n is the distance traveled, and ' denotes a derivative. After trying for a few days to solve this equation for n(as a function of t, time), I gave up and tried to solve it using change in kinetic energy, which also didn't work. Any ideas? Thanks.
