 \frac{1}{\lambda}= RZ^{2}\left( \frac{1}{m^{2}} - \frac{1}{n^{2}} \right )

for \lambda=\lambda_{1}, \:\:m=3,\:\:n=4

\frac{1}{\lambda_{1}}=RZ^{2}\left( \frac{1}{9}- \frac{1}{16} \right )= \frac{7}{144}\:\:\:.\:\:\: RZ^{2}=\frac{7}{144}\:\:\:.\:\:\:R

For \lambda=\lambda_{2}, \:\:\:m=2,\:\:\:n=3

\frac{1}{\lambda_{2}}=R \times 1^{2} \left(\frac{1}{4}- \frac{1}{9}\right )= \frac{5}{36}R

\frac{\lambda_{1}}{\lambda_{2}}= \frac{\frac{144}{7R}}{\frac{36}{5R}}=\frac{144}{7R}\times \frac{5R}{36}= \frac{20}{7}
