Absorption of a circularly polarized light beam by electric conductive medium is considered. It is confirmed that the beam carries the double angular momentum in comparison with the prediction of the standard Maxwell electrodynamics. So, the electrodynamics is not complete. A spin tensor and a torque bivector are used. The torque bivector is an analog of Lorentz force. The both quantities are absent in the modern electrodynamics.
