    don't know if that could happen. It takes about 0.4 sec to fall 1 meter, less in this case due to initial velocity, prob 0.2-0.3 sec. You would have to calculate rate of heat transfer for various temperatures on a section of a column of urine and see if it would transfer enough heat away to freeze in that amount of time. Heat transfer would be via evaporation and convection mostly.

    a complicated calculation. With the right equipment, might be better done experimentally.

    if it happened all, it would occur just before it hits the ground. "flash freezing" would not happen, it is moving too fast for that.
