The idea of thickness refers to thick Of something. The term can be linked to the width or the thickness of a body . For example: "The thickness of the new phone presented by the Finnish company barely exceeds eight millimeters", “A blanket of snow almost half a meter thick covers the downtown streets of the city right now”, "With proper makeup it is possible to increase the thickness of the eyelashes".
Thickness is an important feature in multiple objects. In the field of music , to cite a case, differences in thickness are key in the strings , the nozzles , the cymbals and the barbed because they allow to generate different sounds.
The screws , the nuts and the washers , on the other hand, they have multiple thicknesses. Use one or another piece according to its thickness and others properties (such as length) depends on the specific needs we have in each case.
He food thickness , meanwhile, usually determines the time of cooking . A one-centimeter thick steak requires less cooking time than a two-centimeter steak: if both steaks remain in the oven or on the grill for the same time, it is most likely that the one with the smallest thickness will burn or thicker raw.
He drawing It is another area in which the concept of thickness has a very important role. In this case, it comes into play when choosing pencils, markers, crayons and brushes, among other materials, without neglecting the canvases, for which this property also alters the results. The thickness of the tip of a pencil, for example, is decisive for the style of the drawings that we can do with it: if we seek to hide the edges to the maximum, then we will use a very thin tip, and vice versa.
The edges in the drawing are one of the easiest aspects to be noticed by the public: at one end we have the styles that accentuate them, that use them very thick and crisp, and on the other those that directly replace them with realistic shading. If we think of a character from contours thick as Pocahontas , from the movie published by Disney in 1995, and we compare it with the picture The Mona Lisa , from Leonardo da Vinci , we have an exponent of each case.
With respect to the thickness of the canvas or paper, always in the field of painting and drawing, it is not a property that necessarily determines its degree of absorption, since more variables are necessary to resolve its relationship with the ink, but in broad strokes we can say that the thickest are usually the most absorbent. For this reason, for a pencil drawing it is not necessary to use a particularly thick material, and the opposite occurs with the paint.
Returning to the field of music, the thickness of the components of an instrument (including the parts of the human body that are involved in the production, projection and amplification of the voice) is not the only one of interest in the context of a presentation. The walls, ceilings and floor of a theater must meet certain conditions so that the sound does not deteriorate before reaching the ears of the public; Besides materials Used for its construction, thickness is a key point, especially to insulate the room from external noise.
In the engineering and in the architecture finally the material thickness It's very important. This measure can determine if a structure is resistant or if, on the contrary, it is weak and therefore dangerous.
