In the blue dye experiment the dye in the hot water moved faster than the dye in the cold water because molecules move faster when heated than molecules in cold water. In the hot beaker the water molecules attracted each other faster because molecules move faster in hot water. In the cold beaker the water molecules attracted each other but molecules move slower in cold water. The pattern of the cold water was stringy because the molecules move slower so the dye spread out slower. The pattern in the hot beaker spread out pretty fast but the dye did not go to the bottom of the beaker because heat rises. The dye spread out through the beakers very differently. In the cold beaker the dye sunk down to the bottom immediately, this was because there
