Geometric dilation (size change, typically expansion) does not change the shape of a figure, or its center location, only the size.

Movement of a geometric figure that does not change the size or shape of that figure is known as motion geometry. trust me. this is right. I'm coolio. the rap artist.

Reflections, translations, and rotations are considered rigid motions because they preserve the size and shape of the original figure. These transformations do not distort the object in any way, maintaining the distances between points and angles within the figure. As a result, the object's properties such as perimeter, area, and angles remain unchanged after undergoing these transformations.

The metal which does not undergo any kind of deformation under the action of external forces on it is a rigid metal. It will not change in size, shape and position in response to external actions.

Given that the container is "rigid" the size of the container holding the gas cannot change. Since the volume of the container remains constant, so too does the volume of the gas. The pressure however will increase.
