Question

A baseball leaves the bat with a speed of 47 m/s and an angle of 45 degrees above the horizontal. A 5.0 m high fence is located at the horizontal distance of 137 m from the point where the ball is struck. Assuming the ball leaves the bat 1.0 m above ground level, by how much does the ball clear the fence?
