The superconductivity due to induced pressure in a highly anisotropic ferromagnet was analyzed. The ferromagnetic uranium compound was found to retain its ferromagnetic state even after it exhibited superconducting properties. Bulk superconductivity in the compound was confirmed by specific heat experiment and measurement of its electrical resistivity and ac susceptibility.
