Unformatted text preview: numbered 15 and 20 appear to be the same metal. -I think piece number 1 is aluminum, piece number 3 is lead, and pieces numbered 15 and 20 are iron.-Pieces 15 and 1 are “light” and pieces 3 and 20 are “heavy”.-The property that is involved here is mass.-This property is extensive.-Increasing volume: 15, 3, 20, 1. Volume is an extensive property.-It is possible for the larger piece and the smaller piece in the “light” to weigh about the same the pieces have the same density. This holds true for the same pattern in the “heavy” set. -It does make sense to say a particular substance is lighter than another substance because each substance has a certain mass and a certain weight that can make it lighter.-This property is density.-Density is the mass divided by the volume.-This property is intensive. Conclusion : Extensive and intensive properties were very important in determining information about the four pieces of metal in this experiment....
