A rectangular concrete beam of width $$120$$ $$mm$$ and depth $$200$$ $$mm$$ is prestressed by pretensioning to a force of $$150$$ $$kN$$ at an eccentricity of $$20$$ $$mm.$$ The cross sectional area of the prestressing steel is $$187.5\,\,m{m^2}.$$ Take modulus of elasticity of steel and concrete as $$2.1 \times {10^5}\,\,MPa$$ and $$3.0 \times {10^4}\,\,MPa$$ respectively. The percentage loss of stress in the prestressing steel due to elastic deformation of concrete is
