 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
which is an extensive property of matter
 A mass B boiling point C conductivity D density
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Mass and volume are extensive properties, whereas density is an intensive property.

Detailed explanation-2: -There are properties such as length, mass, volume, weight, etc. that depend on the quantity or size of the matter, these properties are called an extensive property of matter and their value changes if the size or quantity of matter changes.

Detailed explanation-3: -Mass is an example of extensive property as it depends on the amount of matter in the given sample and also its mass is proportional to the size of the system.

Detailed explanation-4: -Matter has two fundamental properties: volume and mass. Volume simply refers to the space an object takes up. Depending on the physical state of an object, there are a couple ways to measure volume.

Detailed explanation-5: -Density is an intensive property because there is a narrow range of densities across the samples. No matter what the initial mass was, densities were essentially the same. Since intensive properties do not depend on the amount of material, the data indicate that density is an intensive property of matter.
