The motion of a one-dimensional massive particle under the action of collisions with points of the ideal gas is considered. It is shown that the normed displacement of the massive particle is represented asymptotically as the difference of random variables having limit Gauss distribution. Estimations of the diffusion coefficient not depending on the mass are found.
