I have done a basic calculation of the force at an angle on the speed bump when the car makes a contact on it (please check the attached image), now I wanted to calculate the kinetic energy that I can get from this considering the vehicle is 1850 kg and travelling at 15 mph from this force. I have also calculated the potential energy that I can get from the car just using gravity and the mass. Once I obtain that how do I add both the energies? Can I just add them or is there an equation for it?
The main aim here is to calculate the energy that I can get when a car at 15 mph hits a speed bump.
