In brief: As loaded barrel

Gall bladder contracts and empties the bile with fatty meal , physiological distended gb is filled to the capacity , ready to empty after meal results in partially distended half filled gb.
Distends in disease also as stone blocks cystic duct ( hydrops ) or tumor in head of pancreas.
