Two lighter nuclei combine to form a comparatively heavier nucleus by the relation given below :

$${ }_{1}^{2} X+{ }_{1}^{2} X={ }_{2}^{4} Y$$

The binding energies per nucleon for $$\frac{2}{1} X$$ and $${ }_{2}^{4} Y$$ are $$1.1 \,\mathrm{MeV}$$ and $$7.6 \,\mathrm{MeV}$$ respectively. The energy released in this process is _______________ $$\mathrm{MeV}$$.

In the hydrogen spectrum, $$\lambda$$ be the wavelength of first transition line of Lyman series. The wavelength difference will be "a$$\lambda$$'' between the wavelength of $$3^{\text {rd }}$$ transition line of Paschen series and that of $$2^{\text {nd }}$$ transition line of Balmer series where $$\mathrm{a}=$$ ___________.
