Plain Language Summary: The effect of gas non-ideality has been one of the concerns in considering the structures under the high temperature and pressure condition of the lower atmosphere of Venus. The present study reveals that the one-dimensional radiative-convective equilibrium profile by the use of the ideal gas thermodynamic function actually produces significant differences from that of the real gas, about 7 K increase in the surface temperature even when temperature-dependence of specific heat is implemented.
