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 -
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?
