what is persistence of vision?

Asked by Aniket likhar 25th February 2013, 12:58 PM
Answered by Expert


Persistance of vision is the property of vision due to which the sensation of image formed on retina of our eyes persists in our brain for 1/10  sec. If any other image is formed on retina before that then we are unable to differentiate between those images.
This property of vision is called persistance of vision.
