In the image are two objects. Object A has ten times the mass of Object B. Each object produces a gravitational field that exerts a gravitational force on the person. The person is standing halfway between the two objects.

What is the direction of the net gravitational field at the person's location?






The net gravitational field is zero at the person's location and therefore has no direction.


A gravitational field is a scalar and thus has no direction.
