    The properties of matter can be classified as either intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic properties are innate in one object and doesn't vary in any situation. Examples of which are boiling point, melting point, density, and many more. Extrinsic properties vary in different matter. This includes length, color, mass, volume, etc.

    The properties can be also classified as either general or specific. General properties are properties of all matter. Mass, volume and impenetrability are some examples of general properties. Specific properties are properties that can be possessed by some matter. This includes hardness, malleability, porosity, conductivity, elasticity, and many more.
