These very important questions are answered with great detail and clarity in this video. It takes all the mysteries out of your next shotgun choke tube selection for hunting season.
Think of the ordinary garden hose and how much water you want to hit the plant with. When completely open, the water showers on a greater area for close-range saturation. Constricting the water supply makes the hose more powerful at a greater distance. That's exactly how choke restriction in a shotgun barrel works, except with birdshot.
In this video, YouTuber srspower does a great job explaining the different choke tube restrictions available and what their best applications are.
