Dear shanky

if you are taking about a single rigid body then its center of mass will also move if the body moves.

 and if you are consederinf a system of more than two body then its center of mass may remain in rest provided that

  = m1 V1 + m2V2 + m3V3 + ....... mnVn = 0 

  where m1,m2,m3,m4   are the mass of different body  and V1,V2,V3 are their velocities repetively .

if m1 V1 + m2V2 + m3V3 + ....... mnVn ≠  0   then center of mass of the center will also move.

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.
If you find any question Difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you
the answer and detailed  solution very  quickly.

 We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.
