To win the game, a place kicker must kick a football from a point 20 m (21.872 yd) from the goal, amd the ball must clear the crossbar, which is 3.05 m high, When kicked, the ball leaves the ground with a speed of 16 m/s at an angle of 58.1 degrees from the horizontal.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2.

By how much vertical distance does the ball clear the crossbar?
