What happens if you add food coloring into cold water?

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.
