**HELP ME PLEASE!!!**

## Homework Statement

A place-kicker must kick a football from a point

36.0 m (about 40 yards) from the goal, and half the crowd

hopes the ball will clear the crossbar, which is 3.05 m high.

When kicked, the ball leaves the ground with a speed of

20.0 m/s at an angle of 53.0° to the horizontal. (a) By how

much does the ball clear or fall short of clearing the crossbar?

(b) Does the ball approach the crossbar while still rising

or while falling?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Ok so i found the velocity of the x component using simple trig but then im in trouble with the next step. i have absolutely no clue at all i tried to find the time it takes to cover the x displacemetn at the x velocity then used that time to find the overall displacement.
