Re: who can tell me this formula's unit?
All dimensions for calculation are in mm for length/ distance, Hz for frequency and seconds for time.

Re: who can tell me this formula's unit?
The explanations by Navita on equation A.1 of European Standard EN 12668-2 are correct.

If you use mm/s for velocity and cycles/s = Hz for frequency you get mm for the near field length. The factor 15.16 and sin2(gamma) are dimensionless.

Please note, that the velocity of the block is addressed, not the velocity of the transducer.
