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.

Which water cool faster hot water in a black cup or hot water in a white cup?

I think black, because black attract heat or light.White, because black attracts heat.and white is stupider. The water in the black cup will cool faster. A dull black surface generally is a better emitter and absorber of radiation compared to a shiny smooth surface of cup 2. This increases the amount of heat lost via radiation in the black cup to be greater, causing water in the white cup to be of higher temperature.

In which pot will water cool faster a white pot or a black pot?

Does the color of water affect its evaporation if so what do you need?

While water its self doesn't come in different colors things like the color of the container or surface it is on and any dyes in the water would affect the rate of evaporation. Water on a black surface would evaporate faster than one on a white surface. likewise if you were to dye the water black the dye would absorb more energy and heat the water faster resulting in faster evaporation.
