An extensive property is something that depends on the amount of the substance you are measuring. An example would be mass
An intensive quantity does not depend on the amount of the substance. Ex: Density Also since the color of a substance does not change if I take 1g or 100 g of a substance the color is an intensive property.

Intensive properties are those physical properties which do not depend on the size of the system or the amount of material present in  the system such as temperature density viscosity and so like.extensive properties are those properties which depend on the amount of material present in the system such as mass length resistance and so like.

Extensive properties depend on how much of a substance you have and intensive properties are things that are in a substance no matter how much you have of it

In the physical sciences, an intensive property (also called a bulk property), is a physical property of a system that does not depend on the system size or the amount of material in the system: It is scale invariant. By contrast, an extensive property of a system does depend on the system size or the amount of material in the system. (see: examples) Some intensive properties, such as viscosity, are empirical macroscopic quantities and are not relevant to extremely small systems.
