Default How does raid5 work?

I've heard from people that raid 5 will protect all your data on both drives but how exactly? What if I got 3 2TB Drives in there will I only get to use 3TB of space? Still doesn't make alot of sense to me, cause if the one 2TB drive fails then I only have 1TB left on another drive to save me...How does this work I'm stumped...Is raid 10 the best way to go for the fastest and surfire way of always having a backup?
