I found this previous post, https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1396#p220853, that says that heat capacity is an intensive property, however on the Wikipedia page for heat capacity, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_capacity, it says heat capacity is an extensive property. I'm so confused now. Is heat capacity an extensive or intensive property?
Heat capacity is an extensive property, but specific heat capacity is an intensive property. The reason why is because specific heat capacity is defined as per 1 gram.
Heat capacity is intensive. It does not matter what quantity is there, the heat capacity stays the same.
