Intensive vs. Extensive

I know that specific heat capacity is an intensive property and that heat capacity is an extensive property but what does that mean? Could someone please clarify what these terms mean in these cases and in the general sense as well

Functional group Ethers

If asked to identify the functional groups in a molecule, would ethers be considered a functional group or a substituent? I am confused on what to call it because when naming molecules they are treated as substituents but yet are labeled as a functional group why?

Examples of electrophiles in course reader

In the course reader, as examples for electrophiles, there are alkyl halides and carbonyls, what are some examples of both of these groups?

Naming

When a problem includes a cycloalkane and it asks us to name it, would it be safe to always assume that the cycloalkane is the longest carbon chain in the structure?

The Units of k (rate constant) for second order

As I was trying to figure out the units for the rate constant (k) for second order, using the integrated rate law, I got that the units were 1/M^-1*sec^-1, are these units correct? If so, could an explanation be provided as to how they can be understood conceptually.

Cell Diagrams

When writing out a cell diagram, if we are not giving two solids in the redox reaction to act as the electrodes, do we always just assume that it will be a platinum electrode for one of them?

Conceptualizing the Boltzmann Equation

In lecture it was stated that in the equation S=Kb*lnW that a large error in W would lead to a small error in S? What does this mean and theoretically would a small error in W then lead to a large error in S?

Derivation

Since entropy is temperature dependent in an isothermal process , I did not understand the derivation for the equation deltaS=nCpln(T2/T1)

Degeneracy

Since entropy is an extensive property and is dependent on a certain amount, in what context would we be asked to calculate total degeneracy?
