What is 40mm, 50mm in Photography? How does it impact photos?

What is the mm on different lenses? How should I care about it? Normally mm is the distance between the lens and the sensor in the camera. It is called focal length. When it says, 50mm, the lens is 5 cm away from the sensor.

How does a 35mm lens differ from 55-300mm lens? What is a wide angle lens and why should I use it? Why 50mm Super Takumar F1.4 a nice lens on modern day cameras?
Here is a nice simulation that tell you everything you need to know without reading a single word. Thanks Nikon.
