Physical properties describe an object.  They can be such things as color, texture, shape, size, mass, volume, etc.

When you talk about intensive properties it means physical properties that do not depend on the amount of matter in the object. Some examples of intensive properties are:  density, boiling point, and freezing point, etc.

Extensive properties depend on the amount of matter in the object. Some examples of extensive properties are:  mass, volume, color, energy content, etc.
