### Re: extensive property

Extensive property is something that depends on the amount of material. For instance, since heat required depends on the amount of substance there is, heat capacity is an extensive property. Other examples of extensive property include volume, mass, weight, and etc.

### Re: extensive property

Extensive properties are those that depend on the amount of matter. Examples include mass and volume; mass increases as the amount of matter increases, and volume does the same. Intensive properties, such as melting point and boiling point, do not depend on the amount of matter present.

### Re: extensive property

An example of an extensive property is Heat Capacity because it tells you the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of an object by 1 degree celsius but it does not tell you how much of that object is present, so the information provided is not useful for other calculations.

### Re: extensive property

An extensive property is a property that changes when the amount of matter changes. Examples include mass, volume, and internal energy.

Personally, what helped me memorize it was that i just learned to memorize the association of mass and volume to the word extensive, so when I thought of extensive I would remember mass and volume. so when I think of mass and volume I remember they depend on the amount of material

Specific Heat Capacity can be considered intensive. No matter how much of a substance you have, its ability to absorb heat energy at a particular temperature is the same.

### Re: extensive property

Extensive properties are directly related to the amount of material present. The amount of heat required to rais X amount of a substance one degree is extensive. Density is NOT an extensive property. Whether you have a whole gallon of water or a drop of water, density is the same.

Intensive properties are properties that don't rely on the amount of substances but the type of matter. Examples would include temperature, color, and density.

The concept of an extensive property would be things that alter depending on the amount of material.
