Air is a mixture of gases at standard conditions. However, at low temperature and high pressures the gas mixture becomes a liquid. The phase diagram for air shows the phase behavior with changes in temperature and pressure. The curve between the triple point and the critical point shows the air boiling point with changes in pressure.
At the critical point there is no change of state when pressure is increased or if heat is added.
The triple point of a substance is the temperature and pressure at which the three phases (gas, liquid, and solid) of that substance coexist in thermodynamic equilibrium.

Example  Mass of Air at Temperature 100 ^{o}C
From the table above  the density of air is 0.946 kg/m^{3} at 100 ^{o}C . The mass of 10 m ^{3} air can be calculated as
m = V ρ
= (10 m^{3} ) (0.946 kg/m^{3} )
= 9.46 kg
where
m = mass (kg)
V = volume (m^{3} )
ρ = density (kg/m^{3} )
Example  Mass of Air at Temperature 20 ^{o}C
From the table above  the density of air is 1.205 kg/m^{3} at 20 ^{o}C . The mass of 10 m ^{3} air can be calculated as
m = (10 m^{3} ) (1.205 kg/m^{3} )
= 12.05 kg
Example  Lifting Force of a Hot Air Balloon
An air balloon with volume 10 m^{3} is heated to 100 ^{o}C . The temperature of the surrounding air is 20 ^{o}C. The change in gravity force (weight) of the air volume is the potential lifting force of the balloon. The lifting force can be calculated as
F _{ l } = dm a _{ g }
= V d ρ a _{ g }
= (10 m^{3} ) [(1.205 kg/m^{3} )  (0.946 kg/m^{3} )] (9.81 m/s^{2})
= 25.4 N
where
F _{ l } = lifting force  change in gravity force (weight) (N)
a _{ g } = acceleration of gravity (9.81 m/s^{2})
dm = V d ρ = change of mass in the balloon (kg)
dρ = change in density due to temperature difference (kg/m^{3} )
