This fourleaf clover consists of four coplanar circles. Each circle is externally tangent to two others, as shown. The two smaller circles are congruent, and the two larger circles are congruent. A square is constructed such that each of its four vertices is also the center of one of the four circles. Suppose the area of the square is 6 1/4 in2, and the combined area of the four circular leaves of the clover is 6 1/2ð in2. What is the positive difference between the radius of a large circular leaf and the radius of a small circular leaf? Express your answer as a common fraction.
