What's the relationship between 'urea' and 'urine'? Is that much urea forms urine? Please tell me, thanks.

Kidding right? Look up what urine is made of on wikipedia or google or anything...

urea and uric acid are two very different things. Urea is a product of protein catabolism while uric acid is a product of nitrous bases catabolism. So different formulas different origin. Similar name.

Urea and uric acid can both be products of protein breakdown - whole groups of animals differ by which final product they excrete.
