    Help, please!

    Four identical pieces of aluminium are each painted with a different type of paint (Piece A is with a shiny white paint, B a shiny black, C a matt white and D a matt black). A droplet of water was placed on each and they were then heated under the same heater and held the same distance (a metre) from said heater. In which order would each of the pieces of aluminium dry from first to last, and why?

    Thank you so much for your help!

    wrt paint colour:
    think about what makes a black object black and a white object white? What are they doing to the radiation being shined onto them?

    Not entirely sure where they're going with matt vs gloss as irl water droplets generally spread out on matt surfaces and form nearly spherical beads on gloss surfaces.
