I have two substances H2O and CH3OH given at a temperature T and pressure P.

I also have critical temperatures and pressures.

How can I find the physical states of these substances.

My teacher recommended me to use the Antoine equation and find the saturation pressure, but I can't see how it can help me.

Phase diagram would be the most obvious approach.

But once you know saturation pressure you can compare it with the given P, don't you?

Yes, I tried it on a phase diagram, but I couldn't find one that would provide the right scale. I can't find exactly where the point is. If you want, I can pass exactly the right values. And when you said that the saturation point could help, do you mean that this point is the same critical point? If not, I am unable to understand the meaning of this saturated pressure, because I calculated using the antoine constants to a temperature fax and did not give the same result as the critical pressure

Sounds like you should brush up on what critical and saturation pressures are, these are different concepts and it doesn't seem like you grasp concepts.
