Expert Answer:

Dear student,
Urine is the waste product secreted by the kidneys that in mammals is a yellow to amber-colored, slightly acid fluid discharged from the body through the urethra.
The urine that exits the kidney consists of water, urea, inorganic salts, uric acid, creatinine, ammonia, organic acids, and broken-down blood pigments, including urochrome, which makes urine yellow, plus any unusual substances not reabsorbed into the blood.
Urine is slightly acidic.
It usually has a faint yellow color due to a urochrome pigment, but the color varies depending upon the degree of concentration, and the ingestion of certain foods or cathartics.
Hope this clarifies your query.
