Extensive properties depend on the quantity of material being measured. An example of an extensive property is mass. The higher the quantity of the material, the higher the mass will be. On the other hand, intensive properties don't depend on the quantity of material being measured. For example, an intensive property would be density. Density is the ratio of mass over volume. It doesn't matter it there is 1g of the material or 1 ton. The density would still be the same.
