Extensive vs. Intensive

Postby Shivangi_2J » Fri Oct 12, 2018 9:24 am

Can someone give me some examples of extensive and intensive properties that aren't in the notes?

Intensive properties: density, melting point, boiling point

Extensive properties: volume, mass, energy

Concentration can also be an intensive property. For example, if you have 5.00g of a solution dissolved in a 150.00mL flask and 20.00 mL of the solution is removed and placed into a new solution (this is #25 on the molarity module), then the initial molarity will stay the same. Although there is now less of the solution, the concentration of it stayed the same. Found on chemsitry.stackexchange.com: "Generally, any property that is a ratio of two extensive properties becomes an intensive property, since both extensive properties will scale similarly to the size of the system."
