Like stated below, an extensive property is one that depends on the amount of matter present. Volume, mass and length are all examples of extensive properties. Intensive properties, on the other hand, are those that do no matter on the amount of matter present. Examples include density.
During one of Lavelle's lectures, he mentioned that intensive properties are more useful in the field of science due to the fact that they are properties intrinsic to the material (they don't depend on the amount).
