The submitted paper deals with the finding of such moist air states in which the components of moist air and hence the humid air itself can be described by the ideal gas model while maintaining a predefined accuracy. Both components of moist air (dry air and water vapor) can be described by a model of ideal gas at sufficiently low pressures and sufficiently high temperatures. In the paper, we are looking for such combinations of pressures and temperatures for both components, where the relative deviation in the density calculation using the ideal gas model does not exceed the desired value. In addition, on the basis of the mixture theory, such moist air conditions (characterized by pressure, temperature and specific humidity) are searched, on which the accuracy of the calculation meets the required conditions. Subsequently, diagrams are constructed that can be used to help identify the interface between a moist air area that can be described by a simple ideal gas model, and areas where it is necessary to use a more accurate model for one of the components.
