## Main Question or Discussion Point

I was wondering, since resistance decreases along with temperature for most metallic conductors (usually power function), in theory, if this conductor were to be at zero kelvin, would the resistance of this material also be precisely zero, or would it just be some extremely small value?

If it was zero ohms, then short circuiting an ideal voltage source with a wire in these conditions would create an infinite current, which i believe is physically impossible, and so we have yet another reason why absolute zero isn't achievable. However it doesn't rule it out theoretically.

Anyway, does anyone have any ideas on the matter?
