When the term saturate is used in conjunction with air it usually means that the air has 100% relative humidity. Do you mean that with a pure hydrogen mixture?

If you are looking for the density the dry gas then you can use the ideal gas law equation to calculate an approximation of the density.

density = RT/P

See page 35 of the PDF link below for the details of the calculation and a graph of the density based on that calculation and what actually occurs in nature.
