A "moment" is a rotational force (e.g. that which wants to twist, turn, 
or tip something). It's force times distance from the pivot. It's the 
same as torque in Physics, but torque has a different meaning in 
mechanical engineering (in connection with a pair of moments that have 
no translational resultant forming a couple)
