Tsunami over the Himalayas?

Asked By: Arellano
Remember the scene of a tsunami hitting the Tibetan monastery in "2012"? I don't think this is a possibility. There was an earlier question asked, but the chosen answer by a geologist omitted one detail. This person had said there is not enough water in all the earth's glaciers to power such a tsunami. But that is insufficient contradiction. Even with just the present levels of the ocean waters, a very high tsunami could arise. Consider making a juice in a blender- the faster your blender spins, the liquid in the rim raises higher and higher (which makes the froth), while the central portions get more depressed. Just a little liquid in the rim rises so high. If pushed from beneath by seismic and other forces, a tsunami could rise unusually high. The movie also omits to say what other geologic phenomena were active at that point. Then again, the Himalayas are thousands of miles inland and thousands of feet high. A whole continent has to sink or be covered by tsunami before reaching the Himalayas. And they also form the border between the Indo-Australian tectonic plate and the Eurasian plate. So, what do y'all think? Can a plausible scenario for tsunami in the Himalayas be developed? Or is it just impossible in the present day? Personally, having visited some places in the Himalayas, I burst out laughing when I saw this scene in the theater.

An atmospheric chemist studying the reactions of the pollutant SO2 places a mixture of SO2 and O2 in a 3.52 L ?

Asked By: f_350crewcab
An atmospheric chemist studying the reactions of the pollutant SO2 places a mixture of SO2 and O2 in a 3.52 L container at 895 K and an initial pressure of 1.95 atm. When the reaction occurs, gaseous SO3 forms, and the pressure eventually falls to 1.65 atm. How many moles of SO3 form?
