If external force is not acting on the system of particles, then

Therefore, the rate of change of momentum is zero i.e momentum of system remains constant.

The above expression represents the law of conservation of linear momentum for system of particles.

If mass of the system is constant, then

So, if net external force on the system is zero, then the velocity of centre of mass of the system will remain constant.
