A Simple Demonstration for Estimating the Persistence of Vision
MacInnes, Iain; Smith, Stuart
Physics Teacher, v48 n6 p394 Sep 2010
In the "The Science Study Series" book "The Physics of Television", it is stated that persistence of vision lasts for about a tenth of a second. This will be a notional figure just as 25 cm is taken to be the least distance of distinct vision. Estimates range from 1/8 to 1/16 s.
