Expert Answer:

Fast and sudden expansion of gas is adiabatic process.
For adiabatic expansion of gas, we have,  
begin mathsize 14px style p subscript i v subscript i superscript gamma space equals space p subscript f v subscript f superscript gamma end style  ......................(1)
where p is pressure and v is volume . subscript i stands for initial state and subscript f stands for final state.
γ is ratio of specific heat .
we are given that , specific heat at constant volume , Cv = 2R
we have , Cp - Cv = R  , where Cp is specific heat at constant pressure.
Hence Cp = 2R+R = 3R  and γ = ( Cp / Cv ) = (3R / 2R ) = 1.5 
Hence ratio of initial pressure to final pressure is determined from eqn.(1) as
begin mathsize 14px style p subscript i over p subscript f equals open parentheses v subscript f over v subscript i close parentheses to the power of gamma space equals space 3 to the power of 1.5 end exponent space almost equal to space 5.2 end style
Answer :- Ratio of initial to final pressure is nearly equal to 5
