Homework Help: Projectile Question?

  1. Sep 22, 2008 #1
    Projectile Question???

    To win the game, a place kicker must kick a
    football from a point 44 m (48.1184 yd) from
    the goal, and the ball must clear the crossbar,
    which is 3.05 m high. When kicked, the ball
    leaves the ground with a speed of 24 m/s at
    an angle of 30.1◦ from the horizontal.
    The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 .
    By how much vertical distance does the ball
    clear the crossbar? Answer in units of m.
