In this paper, we study the angular features of the signal and background processes of the associated production of the Higgs boson with W boson. Signal and background processes are generated using the CompHEP generator. Monte Carlo data is processed in ROOT software. In the course of studying the basic kinematic properties it was found that the shape of the distributions of the angular variables differs for the signal and background processes. The presence of the spin effect makes it possible to consider the difference between the distributions of angular variables. The observed deviations can potentially reduce the background relative to the signal.
