Dear, all I am a ph.d student on speech signal processing on the electrical engineering basis. I am working on auditory model now. During my work, I come across with the term 'acoustic mass' which comes from electroacoustics. I found some explanation on the acoustic mass, but still I can't understand the "physical" meaning of the 'acoustic mass' and why the unit of the 'acoustic mass' is kg/m^4. Is there simple explanation or web pages I can refer? Thanks.
