The density of salt water is higher.

Yes, Salt water will cause food coloring to sink to the bottom slower than it will in pure water.

yes you can cause its just a food coloring

no, food coloring doesn't cause a chemical reaction, it is essenctially like water.

Speed of a wave is slower in shallow water because the relative friction between the water and the bottom surface is higher than that between the layers of water in case of deep water.

hot water molecules move faster with food coloring.you can experiment it with the help of following steps:-Fill the glasses with the same amount of water, one cold and one hot.Put one drop of food coloring into both glasses as quickly as possible.Watch what happens to the food coloring.If you watch closely you will notice that the food coloring spreads faster throughout the hot water than in the cold. The molecules in the hot water move at a faster rate, spreading the food coloring faster than the cold water molecules which mover

Yes,but it is accutly food coloring mixing with water not water mixing with food coloring.

slower because less water is exposed to the heat, the cause of evaporation.

the crystals will settle to the bottom of the beaker and slower diffuse into the water

Yes. The more area at the bottom, the slower it sinks.

Put a flower in a jug of water with a particular color in the bottom, and overtime that flower's petals will be the color of the colored water.

evaporate the water and the food coloring will be left

It works the same as if it was hot water. The food coloring will diffuse the solution the exact same. The only difference is that it will diffuse slower than hot water. This happens for a pretty simple reason. The water molecules of the hot water are moving around a lot faster than the cold water. If the molecules are moving faster, they will interact with the food coloring molecules quicker hence diffusing (spreading) it quicker. hope this helps.

No. Salt cause temperature to fall below 0 degree cel.

It absorbs different wavelengths of visible light

Physical, the water is still water and the food coloring is still food coloring you just mixed them together in one space. If you waited long enough the food coloring and water would settle back out so you had just water and food coloring.

water with food coloring. just did that for science experiment.

User Avatar

Water is a solvent in which food coloring is dissolved making a solution.

User Avatar

Yes. There is no harm in drinking water with food coloring. Food coloring is made to be consumed, whether with water, cake icing, or other foods.

User Avatar

yes and no well it cant cause fast water and it will weather slower then as if water would at a fast current so it will weather just slow.

User Avatar

because the water is clear and when the coloring is mixed in, it takes on that color

User Avatar

I think not because cold water is heaver than hot water and hot water rises to the top and cold drops to the bottom.

User Avatar

Hi i just did a science project on that and the answer is yes hot water rises its a scientific fact. if you dont believe me do this. color cold water with BLUE food coloring and the warm water with RED food coloring and poor them into a container at the same time. the red is on top and the blue is on the bottom hope i helped!!!!

This is the diffusion of the coloring agent molecules in water.

No, food Coloring is a water based dye, it will have a negligible effect on the rate at which water evaporates.
