Arc Length (sort of

I have an aluminum bar, 3 mm high. It is secured at one end and
oscillates up and down vertically on the other end. Measurements are
taken at a point 100 mm away from the secured end.

I need to figure out what the length (L) of the top of the bar is at a
particular amplitude of oscillation (A).

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this. I appreciate any help.
