# Assertion :Gravitational fields are vector fields. They can be visualized in two ways: either by drawing, at each point in space, an arrow representing the gravitational field vector at that point, or by drawing field lines Reason: If many masses are present, the resultant gravitational field at any point is the vector sum of the gravitational fields at that point due to each mass.

Solution

## The correct option is A Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for AssertionGravitational fields are vector fields. They can be represented by drawing field lines, because, if many masses are present, the resultant gravitational field at any point is the vector sum is the vector sum of the gravitational fields at the point due to each mass.
