Define persistence of hearing, Physics

The impression of sound heard by our ears persist in our mind for 1/10th of a second. If another sound is heard before 1/10 second is over, the impression of the two sound mixes up and our mind cannot differentiate among the two. So for the creation of distinct beats, frequencies of two sources of sound could be nearly similar.
