Pressure units ATA full form?

A unit of absolute pressure in the metric.ATA(s): Abbreviation for "Atmospheres Absolute", defines as the total pressure exerted on an object, by a gas or mixture of gases, at a specific depth or elevation, including normal atmospheric pressure.


What should the mole percent of oxygen be in the diving gas for the partial pressure of oxygen in the mixture to be 0.21 ATM the same as in air at 1 ATM?

For the partial pressure of oxygen in the mixture to be 0.21 ATM, you would need the mole percent of oxygen in the diving gas to be 21%. This is because the partial pressure of a gas in a mixture is directly proportional to its mole fraction in the mixture, assuming ideal gas behavior.

Why do you mentioning the boiler pressure in 'ata'?

Normal atmospheric pressure is abbreviated as atm. But when computing for the amount of total pressure exerted on an object at a specific depth or elevation, including normal atmospheric pressure, then the abbreviation ata is used. It stands for atmospheric pressure absolute.
