In reply to the comment of Lu and An on our publication paper [Phys. Rev. E 70, 016304 (2004)], we show that the consideration of water vapor exchange at the bubble interface is essential for obtaining our results and the adiabatic model is too simple to produce the differences. Moreover, in spite of smallness of the compressional viscosity term at the collapse, the illustrated differences are reasonable due to the strong nonlinearity of the bubble dynamics at the collapse and its sensitivity to even small perturbations. We emphasize on the correctness of our calculation results and our simulation programs are now available on the web.
