Mole fraction of water vapor is the ratio of water molecules to air and water molecules.
The mole fraction of water vapor is the ratio of the number of mole of water vapor in the moist air - to the total number of mole of dry air and water vapor.
The mole fraction of water vapor in moist air can be expressed as
xw = nw / (na + nw) (1)
xw = mole fraction of water vapor
nw = mole of water
na = mole of air

Dry air is a mechanical mixture of nitrogen, oxygen, argon and several other gases in minor amounts.
Dry air is a mixture of gases where the average molecular weight (or molar mass) can be calculated by adding the weight of each component.
