Hi,

[ chem. thermodynamics.]

**Why are pressure and temperature intensive properties ? **

- I assume that the pressure , temp. considered in the above statement is the same as in the equation PV= nRT .

So , P, V as well as T depend on quantity of substance , I mean -

P=nRT/V

T= PV/nR

V= nRT/P

The changes in pressure and volume may nutralize

each other to make T an intensive property. Is it correct?

But why is pressure intensive? It depends upon 'n'.

I think, V certainly depends upon 'n' , so for one of the remaining two variables to be intensive , the other one should nutralize the change in V , and for this , it should be extensive too. So, only one of the three variables can be intensive. Isn't it?

Please help....
