### What does the law of conservation of momentum tells us?

The Law of conservation of momentum tells us that the law of
conservation of energy is in effect.
The first derivative of energy is force. If the force is zero,
then there is conservation of energy. If force is zero than
momentum is constant as force is dP/dt then 0=dP/dt or Conservation
of Momentum.

### How is Newton's third law of motion related to the law of conservation of momentum?

Newton's 3rd law requires two forces to be equal and opposite
thus summing to zero.
The forces can be represented by the change in momentum thus
requiring the momentum be conserved, dP/dt = 0.
0 = Fa + Fr =dPa/dt + dPr/dt =d(Pa + Pr)/dt =0.
--
Newton's Laws are the manifestation of the Conservation of
Energy. The 3rd Law is the vector part of the Conservation of
Energy. Conservation of Energy requires that the sum of the Forces
sums to zero.
If the forces sum to zero, and Force is the time derivative of
Momentum, then the Momentum must be constant. Constant Momentum is
the Conservation of Momentum.
Conservation of Momentum is a derivative of the Conservation of
Energy and not an independent Law of Conservation as proposed by
many including Emmy Noether.
The Conservation of Momentum is the vector part of the
Quaternion Conservation of Energy. The Scalar part is said to be
the Conservation of Energy. This confusion results from not
recognizing that Physics is the science of Quaternion
Quantities.

### What did Emmy noether contribute to math?

The Noether Theorem is normally quoted to derive the Law of
Conservation of Energy.
It is some very advanced math, but it basically states that for
every law of symmetry in nature, there is a corresponding
conservation law. For example:
The fact that the laws of nature are the same at different
times is related with the Law of Conservation of Energy (either one
can be derived from the other, I believe).
The fact that the laws of nature are the same in different
places is related with the Law of Conservation of Momentum.
The fact that the laws of nature are the same in different
orientations is related with the Law of Conservation of Rotational
Momentum.

### Conservation is a LAW therefore true but I want to know why it happens what is the theory that explains it?

You mention conservation in general; there are several
conservation laws, like conservation of energy, of linear momentum,
of rotational momentum, of electrical charge, and others.
This is originally based on experience - for example, no cases
are known where the linear momentum is violated.
However, these conservation laws (or many of them?) can be
explained with Noether's Theorem. This is some very advanced math
(for me, at least), but basically, it states that for every
symmetry in nature, there is a corresponding conservation law. For
example, the fact that the laws of physics are the same today as a
year ago (they don't change over time) is related to the Law of
Conservation of Energy; the Law of Conservation of Momentum is
related to a symmetry with respect to position (the laws of nature
are the same here as on the Moon), and the Law of Conservation of
Rotational Momentum is related to a symmetry with respect to
rotation (if you rotate an experimental apparatus, the results
won't change).

### What is the definition of law of conservation?

There are a number of different conservation laws in science,
such as the law of conservation of momentum, the law of
conservation of mass/energy, the law of conservation of charge,
etc. In general a law of conservation states that there is some
measurable quantity of something, which can neither be created nor
destroyed. So, while you can transfer momentum from one object to
another object, the total amount of momentum remains the same,
always, no matter what you do.
