#"Extensive and intensive properties?"#


The #"extensive properties"# are properties that you can measure, i.e. mass, length, pressure etc.; i.e. properties that depend on the extent of the substance. Intensive properties depend on the nature of the substance. Sometimes these are the ratio of 2 extensive properties; i.e. #"density, "rho="Mass"/"Volume"#
