In a nutshell a web application is an iis website that incorporates one or more site collections. Each web app has a different port number.
So your main sharepoint install might be http:\\oursharepoint which would default to port 80, central admin a different web app perhaps port 88888

Extended a web app is to push it out to other iis servers maybe to load balance or for geographical reasons.

Web application - site collection - top level site - subsite
