Elastic recovery

  1. Hello all Im doing material science and I can understand most questions except this one,

    "A 10mm – diameter bar of Medium carbon steel (E=200GPa) subjected to a tensile load of 50KN, taking it beyond its yield point. Calculate the elastic recovery that would occur upon removal of tensile load. "

    I have seen a question like this in the earlier forum psts but in that case they were given the yield stress and the length of the bar. Any help will be much appreciated.
