How do I have the second panel in a jquery accordian open as the default on page load

I need to have item 2 open on page load instead of item 1.  How do I do that?
_______________________________________________________________________
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
      
//Set default open/close settings
$('.acc_container').hide(); //Hide/close all containers
$('.acc_trigger:first').addClass('active').next().show(); //Add "active" class to first trigger, then show/open the immediate next container
 

//On Click
$('.acc_trigger').click(function(){
      if( $(this).next().is(':hidden') ) { //If immediate next container is closed...
            $('.acc_trigger').removeClass('active').next().slideUp(); //Remove all .acc_trigger classes and slide up the immediate next container
            $(this).toggleClass('active').next().slideDown(); //Add .acc_trigger class to clicked trigger and slide down the immediate next container
      }
      
      else if( $(this).next().is(':visible') ) { //If immediate next container is closed...
            $('.acc_trigger').removeClass('active').next().slideUp(); //Remove all .acc_trigger classes and slide up the immediate next container
             
      }

      
      return false; //Prevent the browser jump to the link anchor
});

 

});
</script>

----This is the page code---

<div id="accordian">
<div class="container">
<p class="acc_trigger"><a href="#1">1)&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Item 1</a></p>
<div class="acc_container">
<div class="block">
blah blah item 1


</div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="container">
<p class="acc_trigger"><a href="#2">
2)&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Item 2</a></p>
<div class="acc_container">
<div class="block">
blah blah item2

</div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="container">
<p class="acc_trigger"><a href="#3">
3)&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Item 3</a> </p>
<div class="acc_container">
<div class="block">
blah blah item 3
</div>
</div>
</div>
