In the frame of the photogravitational restricted three-body problem, the binary system RW Tauri and a spherical ice test particle with the radius of 13.9 microns are considered. There are established the trajectory of the particle into an inertial frame and into the co-moving frame; the variation of the velocity of the particle (as a time function) is also plotted. The positions of the equilibrium points are calculated and the equipotential surface corresponding to the out-of-orbital-plane equilibrium points is plotted.
