### Entropy

Why is Entropy an extensive property and not an intensive property?

### Re: Entropy

entropy is an extensive property because it depends on the amount of substance present. more of a substance = a higher entropy.

### Re: Entropy

The more material there is capable of increasing disorder, the higher the entropy potential exists.

### Re: Entropy

Intensive properties don't depend on sample size, whereas an EXtensive property does depend on sample size. We can conclude that entropy is an extensive property because entropy increases when there is more of a sample present.

### Re: Entropy

Entropy is more of an extensive property because as you increase the amount of the substances (take for example the number of gas particles in a container), you increase the possible number of positions (the entropy).
