The absorption characteristics of a dielectric, isotropic sphere in the plasmonic regime are analyzed. Relations are derived for the position of the maximum absorption efficiency for the first electric dipole resonance mode. The dissipation results are connected with the natural frequencies of the sphere as well as to the circuit-inspired matching analogy for optimum absorption.
