A normal with slope $\frac{1}{\sqrt{6}}$ is drawn from the point $(0,-\alpha)$ to the parabola $x^2=-4 a y$, where $a>0$. Let $L$ be the line passing through $(0,-\alpha)$ and parallel to the directrix of the parabola. Suppose that $L$ intersects the parabola at two points $A$ and $B$. Let $r$ denote the length of the latus rectum and $s$ denote the square of the length of the line segment $A B$. If $r: s=1: 16$, then the value of $24 a$ is _______.

Suppose that the foci of the ellipse $${{{x^2}} \over 9} + {{{y^2}} \over 5} = 1$$ are $$\left( {{f_1},0} \right)$$ and $$\left( {{f_2},0} \right)$$ where $${{f_1} > 0}$$ and $${{f_2} < 0}$$. Let $${P_1}$$ and $${P_2}$$ be two parabolas with a common vertex at $$(0,0)$$ and with foci at $$\left( {{f_1},0} \right)$$ and $$\left( 2{{f_2},0} \right)$$, respectively. Let $${T_1}$$ be a tangent to $${P_1}$$ which passes through $$\left( 2{{f_2},0} \right)$$ and $${T_2}$$ be a tangent to $${P_2}$$ which passes through $$\left( {{f_1},0} \right)$$. If $${m_1}$$ is the slope of $${T_1}$$ and $${m_2}$$ is the slope of $${T_2}$$, then the value of $$\left( {{1 \over {m_1^2}} + m_2^2} \right)$$ is

If the normals of the parabola $${y^2} = 4x$$ drawn at the end points of its latus rectum are tangents to the circle $${\left( {x - 3} \right)^2} + {\left( {y + 2} \right)^2} = {r^2}$$, then the value of $${r^2}$$ is

Let the curve $$C$$ be the mirror image of the parabola $${y^2} = 4x$$ with respect to the line $$x+y+4=0$$. If $$A$$ and $$B$$ are the points of intersection of $$C$$ with the line $$y=-5$$, then the distance between $$A$$ and $$B$$ is
