I kinda dont get how the solder will get heated and extended at the open end when the tip is all melted up. please explain.

In reality it's even more than 2 cm. I usually pull around 5cm out of my tube to get more space for maneuvers, which is why solder doesn't get hot enough to melt the pen tip(nozzle).

you have to remove 2 cm and melt only 1.8 cm so that you can pull it by 0.2cm
measurement can be changed

Hmm this gives me an idea how about modding a mechanical pencil to eject the lead when we press the plunger ?
