What is normal atmospheric pressure?

Standard atmospheric pressure is 101.325 kPa. It can also be quoted as 760 mm Hg, or 14,696 psi. Many values of atmospheric pressure are normal, because it varies all the time, but the average at sea level is 101.325 kPa.

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.

Normal pressurized air is used for scuba diving. However, you can get mixed gases for SCUBA diving such as Nitrox, which is mixed gases of nitrogen and oxygen. This is used by deep sea diving, but it takes special training.

Why a mixture of 80 percent Helium and 20 percent Oxygen is used by sea divers?

The stated mixture is used primarily to eliminate the nitrogen present in ordinary air. Nitrogen is almost as soluble in blood as oxygen, and if a deep sea diver breathes air, the dissolved nitrogen is likely to form small bubbles in the blood stream that can cause severe pain ("the bends") and possibly even death from blocked blood vessels after the diver returns to normal atmospheric pressure. Helium hardly dissolves in blood at all, even at fairly high pressure, and what does dissolve is harmlessly expelled after the diver returns to normal atmospheric pressure.
