It's 2.31

Here is what I am thinking so far:

At V2 the system is at equilibrium, so p2 equals p_atm since the spring exerts no force.

So p2 is known.

I now need p1. I am not sure where to go from here. I have V1, V2 and p2.

I think that spring-force/area ispartof p1...

Can someone give me a hint? Just a hint....
