Question: Show that in a free-particle wave packet the momentum uncertainty $∆p$ does not change in time.

I am not sure how to solve for the time derivative of the momentum uncertainty $ ∆p $. I am familiar with the derivation of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle but not aware of how to calculate the momentum uncertainty for a free particle (or its time independence). Can someone please direct me to the correct resources?
