The transporting behavior of colloidal particles generated by external electric potential, temperature, or gradient of solute concentration in continuous phase is known as mobility. In this study, we concentrate on consideration of mobility of a single spherical colloidal particle parallelling a single infinite plate or two infinite plane walls, and the motion velocity of the particles will be calculated with the boundary collocation method and the reflection method.
