1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Why is the length of time over which a phosphor emits light an imporant factor to consider when designing a television screen?

2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution

I have gone over the last three chapters in my textbook for the answer. I even drove to the library to try to get some more understanding of it.
