The influence of impurities on the behaviour of a superconductor is computed by introducing a scattering potential and averaging over all positions of the scattering centers. This procedure only takes into account scattering and free path effects and neglects changes in the elastic constants and electron density due to actual impurities. Using perturbation theory, it is shown that the free energy and the static Meissner effect are not influenced by scattering.
