When we can determine the etymological origin of the term escape, we find the fact that it emanates from Latin. Specifically it comes from the sum of these two parts: former, which can be translated as "take out", and cappa, which is synonymous with "layer".

Escape is the escape or escape action (leave a confinement or danger , flee, rid). For example: "The famous scammer completed the most amazing prison escape of recent times", "He ran to an alley before he realized he had no escape", "Luckily we were able to open an escape route before the collapse".

It is also important to establish that, from the word that concerns us, the term escapism emerged. This is a word that is used to refer to those artists specialized in illusionism that what they do is free themselves from all kinds of devices that have them imprisoned, such as chains or wives, as well as spaces where they are locked, among which they would find cages or buildings, for example.

Throughout history, various experts in illusionism have carried out many escapism numbers. However, among them, the famous Hungarian magician Harry Houdini stands out, who was known precisely as "the king of the wives" for his ability to free himself from those shackles.

It also became a benchmark in the sector thanks to its great facility to escape both straitjackets and trunks, coffins or sacks of different types.

The term is used to name the leakage from gas or of a liquid : "A gas leak forced to evacuate the factory", "The escape began two hours ago and experts have not yet been able to contain it", "The man did not notice the escape and lit a match, causing the explosion".

It is also interesting to establish the existence of what is known as the exhaust valve. This, on the one hand, refers to the safety device that exists in certain devices to ensure that the fluid that it conserves can be released to some extent when there is a lot of pressure.

On the other hand, the same term is used to define the activity that people use to release tensions. A clear example would be sport.

The escape, also known as tailpipe or exhaust pipe , is the conduit which releases the burned gases of a explosion engine To the exterior. Cars and motorcycles are some of the vehicles that have an exhaust.

For the psychology , the escape is a instrumental conditioning mechanism (the form of learning that presents a contingent reinforcing stimulus to the response issued by the subject previously). The escape or negative reinforcement implies the termination of a aversive stimulus (unpleasant or harmful to the recipient). This means that the subject gives an answer after the appearance of the aversive stimulus to end it.

An example of the functioning of the escape as instrumental conditioning can be found in a daily situation and little linked to psychology: when a person goes out and feels cold in the wind, he puts on a coat. In this way, the aversive stimulus (the cold) disappears thanks to the response (shelter) of the subject.
