(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If the ball is kicked at 53 degrees above horizontal what must the initial speed be if it is just to clear the crossbar. I know the ball is distance in the x direction is 10.98 m and the height of the goal post is 3.05 m.

2. Relevant equations

I think I should be using the equations Voy=Vosin(theta) and Vox=Vocos(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

No idea how to solve without having any veclocities to plug into the above equations.
