A moment is essentially a vector description of a torque.

THIS might be jumping ahead a little, but here is a description of what's going on with a cantilevered beam.

HERE is another:

Essentially, you have two force components: shear and bending moment.

Miri,

Take a look on a book entitled "Vector Mechanics for Engineers", authors Beer & Johnston. This book is very educative. You will not regret at.
