Walt said they were removing 1000 gallons of methylamine from the tanker and replacing it with ~920 gallons of water.

The meter hit 1000 when Walt told Jesse & Todd to close the tanker.

At 300 gallons, Walt started the pump to get the water into the tanker..


I'm confused
same but they didn't they dig two different holes...one for the water and one for the meth?


fu*k it I'm watching the episode again

I'm confused
the consistency, density, and shear weight of the water is different than the other substance. That is why Walt kept telling them to WAIT until they disconnected. Walt is a brilliant chemist and a very calculating person (in regards to science). He knew what he was doing.

That sh*t was fu*king dope..

My issue is that how are they removing methylamine and putting water in at the same time? You do that and you're likely to see them reacting together, creating something that's not really methylamine anymore..

Hopefully someone here has a greater understanding of organic chemistry than I do and can explain though..
i think its because the methylamine is heavier so the water will sit on top and slowly mix in. walt calculated the right time that they can simultaneously take out the meth and add water to save time.

I'm confused
for all we know it may be a little light. we know they got all the meth out, dont know if they got all the water in. but either way there's probably enough in there that as walt says, they will charge it to china

methylamine is less dense than water, so it essentially forms an organic layer ON TOP of the water.

Walt was telling them to wait because he wanted to hit exactly 1000gallons. Yet there was no measure of how much water was going back into the tank..

I'm trying to understand the scientific basis behind this.. To say a fictional character "knows what he's doing" is hardly reason for me to accept it..

It's heavier by molar mass, but less dense than water, so it forms an organic layer on top.. Water would sink to the bottom theoretically..

Has nothing to do with what I'm talking about. Walt is using liquid methylamine.

It can possibly react, but would require extra processes, and not only that, but would cause the original estimate of how much water is needed to be off.. Since essentially theyd be removing methylamine with hydroxide.

Ugh, I need sleep.

And the methylamine won't react with the water, its just a simple dilution.


They have chemical consultants on the show
