    if you throw a sealed coke can in a fire, it WILL explode. How much gas is in the can?

    be specific.

    depends on the material and construction of the can. It could have 1/2 inch high grade steel and handle many hundreds of atmospheres. It could be little thicker than aluminum foil and handle 0.1 atm at the most.

    and if you want "how much gas", ie, mass, it also depends on the type of gas. Or do you want pressure?
