What is the difference between 2 pole and 3 pole breaker?

The only phase is 120V while the voltage of the 2-pole line is 240V. There are also 4-pole switches that interrupt three phases plus the neutral phase, but they are less. A 2-pole switch interrupts a conductor in one phase. A 2-pole switch interrupts two phases together.
