I'm just learning about the "spin" property of particles but i'm a little confused. What exactly is the "spin" property of particles and why is it important? Thanks for the help!

I'd say an intrinsic charcteristic of particles... such as a mass. So, why is it important?

That's it!

Moreover, spin is as important as the angular momentum... because it's like an extra-contribution to the classical angular momentum.
