All specific extensive properties are called intensive properties.

All specific extensive properties are called intensive properties.

Ratio of two extensive properties are always intensive. Hence specific vol is intensive property.

Kajal Patil said:   4 years ago
Intensive property => specific volume.

Extensive property => total Volume.

Gautam said:   5 years ago
The ratio of Two extensive properties allways become an intensive property.

Anees said:   6 years ago
Specific volume is intensive property because volume is extensive property and any extensive property divided by mass is intensive property.

Naveen said:   7 years ago
Mass and volume are extensive properties, but hardness is intensive. The ratio of two extensive properties of the same object or system is an intensive property.

For example, the ratio of an object's mass and volume, which are two extensive properties, is density, which is an intensive property.

Debashis said:   7 years ago
Specific volume is reciprocal of density. Density is intensive.

Rahul yadav said:   7 years ago
Because all specific properties are intensive property.

INTENSIVE PROPERTY- which is independent of mass.

Like - pressure, temperature, density, velocity.

Yes right @Jaheer.
