In Figure 1, the velocity of particle i can be expressed as

    Figure 1


Using [3] of Linear Kinetics-Particle, one can express the momentum of the system as


since, from [6] of Center of Mass-System of Particles,


As shown in [2], the momentum of a system of particles is simply equal to that of its CM.
