The resistance of a superconductor in an experiment carried out by S. C. Collins between 1955 and 1958, a current was maintained in a superconducting lead ring for 2.50 yr with no observed loss. If the inductance of the ring was 3.14 x 10-8 H, and the sensitivity of the experiment was 1 part in 109, what was the maximum resistance of the ring? (Suggestion: Treat this as a decaying current in an RL circuit, and recall that e-x ( 1 - x for small x.)
