I had the same question. An intensive property is a property that doesn't depend on the physical quantity, like density. You could double a half reaction to balance the electrons, but since the standard reduction potential is constant it does not need to be double. Since 1 volt = 1 joule per coulomb...

Not sure I 100% understand, but from what I have is: an open system is like a cup whereas a closed system is like a bottle. With bottles, we can't really get in there and add liquids or gas. With an open system like a graduated cylinder there can be both a transfer of mass and energy, since we can e...
