We use Stokes approximation to describe theoretically the photophoretic motion of a solid moderately large aerosol particle of spherical shape at small relative drops of temperature in its neighborhood. By solving equations of gas dynamics, analytical expressions have been obtained for the photophoretic force and rate of photophoresis, taking into account the effect of medium motion.
