When the temperature of a gas increases does the volume of the gas increase in a rigid steel container?

No, because the gas is in a rigid steel container, its volume cannot increase as the temperature increases (assuming the steel does not deform). Instead, the pressure of the gas inside the container will increase. Of course, if the pressure is high enough, the container will explode, lowering the pressure and causing the gas to expand.

Why does the solubility of carbon in steel increase while heating?
