Abstract
The action of the solar corpuscular radiation on the rotational proper ties of small interplanetary dust particles is investigated. It is sho wn that the solar wind increases the angular momentum (spin) of the pa rticle. Analytic solutions are presented for dominant terms in which q uantities of the orders (v/u)(n), n greater than or equal to 1, are ne glected (v is the orbital velocity of dust particle around the Sun and u is the speed of the solar wind particles).
