We study the eigenmodes of a free-carrier lossless magnetoplasma in a small conducting sphere. We determine the frequencies of the oscillations, the motion of the carriers, charge densities etc. The modes fall into three classes of bulk-, surface-, and helicon-like magnetoplasmons. The interaction of the modes with an external electromagnetic field is calculated and the expressions for the power absorption are given.
