the white pan because black gathers heat the white pan because black gathers heat Oddly, both wrong. The black one will cool slightly quicker as black is a better radiator of infrared. Better collectors are also better emitters. The reason it won't make much difference is that both colours are similar at infrared frequencies. If one pan was coloured silver however, it would cool much slower.
