After studying this course, you should be able to:
explain the meanings of the newly defined (emboldened) terms and symbols, and use them appropriately
distinguish between perfect conduction and perfect diamagnetism, and give a qualitative description of the Meissner effect
explain how observation of a persistent current can be used to estimate an upper limit on the resistivity of a superconductor, and perform calculations related to such estimates
explain why the magnetic flux through a superconducting circuit remains constant, and describe applications of this effect
show how the London equations and Maxwell's equations lead to the prediction of the Meissner effect.
