How do you separate ammonia from urine?

Urine from humans has very little ammonia in it at the beginning. Ammonia need ferment in the urine for at least a month with ~1/15 of it water. A. Innitial separtion involves boiling OUTSIDE or in FUNEHOOD into another closed apparatus connected by a hose- the boiling urine to another container. The first one to two hours of very light bioling will not give much ammonia gas, but gives a great deal of tiny bubbles. The very tiny bubbles- these bubbles by the way tend to overflow esily, so the for the first couple of hours one will have very low heat for the first hour or two. It is immediately after these tiny bubbles one distills the ammonia gas into water. This will yeald a sizeable amount of ammonium hydroxide. If distilled a second time the amount of ammonia increases.

Why does the liver change ammonia into urea?

Ammonia is a breakdown product of proteins that is toxic to vertebrates. The body needs to get ammonia out of the body. By itself, ammonia is a small volatile molecule that will leak back and forth through cell and vessel membranes, making it hard for it to be gathered and excreted. Urea is made of two ammonia molecules. Because it is bigger, it is no longer volatile and cannot pass through membranes without special channels or transporters. This allows it to me concentrated in the urine for excretion from the body.
