Deep understanding of line-height

I tried to read mozilla docs and a few things in w3c docs (so long) and all of what i temporarily conclude is that line-height will determine the height of lines of text. For example, a paragraph has font-size: 30px. If we determined its line-height to 30px, that means each line of text inside the paragraph would have a height of 30px enough for presenting the text.

I just don't know if what I thought is completely true. What do you understanding about this? Thank you very much!

Hi Vy, I found a place that gave a great overview of what the line height does. If you read all the way to the bottom they even show you a few examples of what the line height does.
