I seeked information on the evaporation of food coloring and how it dissolved in water. I seeked this information for a research paper, something that is a must at the area science fair that I will be attending January the 25th. I tested a pineapple, cherry, and watermelon candy canes(all lifesavers brand.) to see which will dissolve or lose they're coloring faster, to test this I put each flavored candy cane in water, to test my project out. As a result or to conclude my project the pineapple candy cane kept it's coloring for the longest amount of time. I was told to see if lighter food coloring dissolve faster than darker ones. So what better way to research than to ask a professional scientist.
