It is demonstrated that a dielectric, which absorbs a circularly polarized plane electromagnetic wave, absorbs the angular momentum, which is contained in the wave, according to the canonical spin tensor. The given calculations show that spin occurs to be the same natural property of a plane electromagnetic wave, as energy and momentum.
