Answer :


No, gravitational field cannot be added vectorially to an electric field to get a total field. This is because Electric field comprises of influence due to electric charges whereas gravitational field comprises of influence due to masses of the bodies and thus, electric field and gravitational field have different dimensions. We can obtain net Force by adding Gravitational force and electric force.
Hence, gravitational field cannot be added to electric field vectorially.
