Macroscopic Properties

He properties associated with a macroscopic system (i.e. consisting of large number of particles) are called macroscopic properties. These properties are pressure, volume, temperature, composition, density etc.

Extensive and Intensive Properties

An extensive property of a system is that which depends upon the amount of the substance present in the system like mass, volume and energy.

An intensive property of a system is that which is independent of the amount of the substance present in the system like temperature, pressure, density, concentration, viscosity, surface tension, refractive index etc.
