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

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.
