It is shown that thermophoresis of ultrafine and nanosized particles can be calculated using an ideal gas model in a single-velocity Clausius approximation. An application of the classical approach allows determining the particle velocity and the force generated by the gas phase in the case where a temperature gradient is present in it. A good agreement with the available experimental data is obtained.
