  1. You know g Ar = 228. Convert to mols, then calculate mols CH4 from mol fraction Ar.
    XAr = 1.00-0.65 = [mols Ar/(mols Ar + mols CH4)].
    Then total KE/mol = 3/2(RT) which allows you to calculate KE for n mols CH4 followed by KE for n mols Ar. Then add those together. (Alternatively you can add moles to find total mols and do all at once.)
