Mowing is one of the most important aspects of maintaining a good quality and healthy lawn. Mowing increases density, which provides a better defense against weeds. Mowing can determine the success or failure of a lawn.
The height is determined by the growth and the leaf width, I think it's mostly on how much your grass grows. If your grass grows horizontally, it can be cut shorter than if it grows upright. Narrow blades of grass can be cut lower and grasses with wide blades should be cut higher. Although if you have Bahia grass this would not apply, Bahia grass need to be cut at higher heights because of the open upright growth habit. If you cut to short you will notice a scalping effect on your lawn, which I call burning the lawn, this can produce long term damage to the lawn. Mowing height also influences rooting depth. Mowing below the recommended heights can cause your lawn to eventually die off.
Never remove the grass clippings. The clippings hold the lawns nutrients and water that you have spent so much time to put down.
