Does the color of water affects its evaporation because is more dense?

How quickly water evaporates does not depend on its density at all. If you added black coloring to water (maybe black ink for instance) and the water is exposed to sunlight, it might increase how quickly water evaporates because the black color would cause the water to heat up more, and then evaporate faster. If it wasn't exposed to sunlight, the color wouldn't make any difference though. What does affect how quickly water evaporates is the amount of dissolved ions in it. More ions dissolved lowers the vapor pressure, which reduces its tendency to boil or evaporate.

The color of water does affect the evaporation rate because the red water is more dense then regular clear water.

it does effect because the colors can be less dense

The force of gravity affects nearby light, causing a change in temperature.

I would think it would make it less dense since it evaporated, because it pratically diappeared.

because it is very dense and do not pass the sun light.
