A tightly closed container has 500 mL of gas. If the gas is carefully transferred into a 1500 mL container without any leakage, what will be the volume of gas in the new container?
The correct option is D 1500 mL The volume of any gas is equal to the volume of the container in which it is present. This is because gases do not have a fixed volume. They occupy the maximum available space. So, when 500 mL of gas is transferred to a 1500 mL container, it occupies the entire available space i.e. 1500mL.
