angular momentum, area, force, length, and time. ]

Examples of intensive properties include temperature, T; refractive index, n; density, ; and hardness, . By contrast, extensive properties such as the mass, volume and entropy of systems are additive for subsystems. Not all properties of matter fall into these two categories.
