Why does thicker metal take longer to cut?

Rocking(changing the angle) the hack saw every few strokes allows one to cut thick material easier. This is because the angle
change reduces the number of teeth cutting at any one time. Less teeth cutting increases the pressure on each cutting tooth
resulting in more material removed with each stroke.
I use that technique with my chainsaw as well.
