Example Question #2 : Colligative Properties

Which of the following is not an intensive property?

Possible Answers:

Temperature

Volume

Melting point

Density

Pressure

Correct answer:

Volume

Explanation:

Intensive properties are not dependent on the amount of substance. Melting point, pressure, temperature, and density are some examples of intensive properties. Therefore, volume of a substance is not an example of an intensive property, rather, it is an extensive property which depends on the amount of substance. Some other examples of extensive properties include weight, energy, and electric charge.
