 A
adiabatic: Process that occurs without a gain or loss of heat.

amperage (amps): A common measure for indicating 'volume' of electrical flow

amperage runaway: Happens in traditional electrolyzers when the cell's electrical resistance (electrolyte resistance) lowers as the electrolyte heats up; less cell resistance allows more amperage to flow at the same voltage; amperage flow through resistance causes heat; more amperage flow, the faster the electrolyte heats up; hotter electrolyte has lower electrical resistance

astable: Repeats itself.

atomize: Make into a mist.

atomizing' spray nozzles: Nozzles that break a fluid into very small droplets or mist.
