Expanding Hooke's law for linear material, the total stress in a viscoelastic piezoelectric plate is:
We assume that the dependence between the tensions and deformations for the non-uniform modulus orthotropic belt corresponds to the correlations for the generalised Hooke's law [4]:
If we allow n = 1, then (1) reduces to Hooke's law for linear elastic material and the constant K, also called the bulk modulus, equals the corresponding Young's modulus E.

If Es is large so that the stretching deformation is small, Hooke's law works well.
Equation (1a) is the standard version of Hooke's law, simply stating that the applied stress is proportional to the imposed strain.
The following study explored the reasons why theoretical and intuitive physical knowledge may be congruent, as in the case of Hooke's law and the respective intuitive-physics law.
In the opener, Hooke's law is used to explain a pogo-stick wipeout.
Considering Hooke's law for conditions of uniaxially-stretched core let's note
Young's modulus of PSB can be given using the Hooke's law assuming a uniaxial stress state in the grain direction:
The final goal of the majority of the game engines is the simulation of a limited number of physic phenomena, among which the most important are the kinematics and dynamics of rigid and soft bodies, represented through Newton's laws of motion and Hooke's law. The literature on these issues in the field of gaming is quite limited and more often oriented to practitioners or to teaching activities (see, e.g., [1, 2, 8, 11, 17, 18], etc.).
