We need to know the slope of the ramp, if friction is important, and if the object is on earth.

The wording of this question puzzles me because if they are in orbit they feel no gravitational force since the centripetal acceleration (v^2/R) exactly balances earth gravity. However if you wish to separate out those two factors then use Forbit = G m Me / Rorbit^2 Fground = ...

do you have a typo or is that something I just do not know about?

yes, use x

"planned to seize" looks like a simple predicate to me. If it said: "planned to seize immediately" I would say "planned to seize" was the simple predicate and "planned to seize immediately" was the complete predicate

The difference in speed is maybe 8 km/s these are 5*60 = 300 seconds apart so 8 * 300 = 2400 km

Physical science
F = d/dt (mv) in other words force is rate of change of momentum (in the special case of constant mass this is F = m a) so F * change in time = change of momentum This is usually called "impulse".
