    For an adiabatic process, pressure and volume are related as follows:

    PV^k = constant

    where k is the specfic heat ratio.

    Since the right is a constant, we can write the equation as follows:

    P1V1^k = P2V2^k

    substituting the given values,

    P2/P1 = 2.5

    V1/V2 = 2

    2.5 = 2^k

    k = 1.32

    Hope this answers the question. Have a nice day.
