What is the difference between intensive and extensive properties?

Intensive properties do not depend on the quantity of matter. Examples include density, state of matter, and temperature. Extensive properties do depend on sample size. Examples include volume, mass, and size

Extensive properties, such as mass and volume, depend on the amount of matter being measured. Intensive properties, such as density and color, do not depend on the amount of the substance present

Intensive properties do NOT depend on mass, while extensive properties do depend on mass.

Intensive properties don't depend on the quantity of matter that's being measured, while extensive properties do depend on the quantity being measured. An intensive property would be density while an extensive property would be volume.

An example of this is heat capacity vs specific heat capacity. Heat capacity depends on the amount of substance but specific heat capacity does not.

The way I remember the difference is that extensive properties can be divided by the amount of the substance (e.g. heat capacity divided by mass) to become intensive properties (specific heat capacity as a result of heat capacity/mass).

intensive properties are independent of size and extensive properties are dependent on size

Intensive property do not care for quantity. For instance Density is intensive as it will be unchanged regardless of amount of material. This is the opposite for Extensive property such as mass.

Intensive properties do not rely on the amount of substance.

Intensive properties do not rely on the quantity of matter while extensive properties due depend on the quantity of matter.

Intensive properties do not depend on the quantity of matter , and expensive properties do depend on the amount of matter.

Extensive properties depend on your sample size. Specific heat capacity, for example, is an extensive property since it will increase with a greater sample size (requires more energy to increase the temperature of a larger sample by one degree celsius than a smaller sample size).

Extensive properties depend on the amount of matter being measured meanwhile intensive properties don't.

Intensive properties don't depend on the amount of a substance, while extensive properties do. For example, density is intensive but mass is extensive.

Extensive properties depend on mass and intensive properties do not.
