1. Why does urine go dark in colour on a hot day and/or when you're exercising?

  • Because blood is not flowing as much in the body in those conditions
  • It is more concentrated as water has been lost from sweating (being hot) and breathing a lot more (exercising)
  • Trick question: Urine is paler in colour on a hot day and/or when you're exercising
  • The kidneys do not excrete as much urine in those conditions
