Obeying the husband in having sexual intercourse in the daytime in Ramadaan due to ignorance of the ruling

Question: I am aware of a few rulings about the Kaffaarah (expiation) of the nullification of Sawm (Fast) and I hope you will give me some information about the Kaffaarah of invalidating Sawm by having sexual intercourse in the daytime in Ramadaan.
