    What's the meaning of this sentence? Thanks

    "Properties that are classified as intensive identify the type of substance and the extent of it present in the
    surrounding matter."
    Here, what's the meaning of "present in".
    Thanks.

    How much of this substance exists in the surrounding matter.
    Is that a little more clear?

    An intensive property is a property such as density or viscosity, which have nothing to do with the amount of a substance in a given system.
