An approach based on the generalized reciprocal theorem is presented to derive the well-known result for the drag force exerted on a rigid sphere translating in a viscous fluid in an arbitrary manner. The use of generalized reciprocal theorem allows one to bypass the calculation of stress distribution over the particle surface in order to compute the force.
