A compartment measures 3.5 meters by 5.5 meters and is 3 meters high. A fire raises the temperature from 68 degrees F to 1500 degrees F. If the starting pressure was 1 atmosphere, what volume is present at the elevated temperature assuming the compartment has openings to reduce pressure?

The volume of the compartment did not change.

If it is the volume of gas you want including that outside, well one would have to assume a temperature for the gas that escaped to outside.

In other words I do not understand the question.

I believe the question has to do with pressure and measurement.
