Based on the standard Skyrme energy density functionals together with the extended Thomas-Fermi approach, the properties of symmetric and asymmetric nuclear matter represented in two macroscopic-microscopic mass formulas: Lublin-Strasbourg nuclear drop energy (LSD) formula and Weizsacker-Skyrme (WS*) formula, are extracted through matching the energy per particle of finite nuclei. For LSD and WS*, the obtained incompressibility coefficients of symmetric nuclear matter are K-infinity=230 +/- 11 MeV and 235 +/- 11 MeV, respectively. The slope parameter of symmetry energy at saturation density is L = 41.6 +/- 7.6 MeV for LSD and 51.5 +/- 9.6 MeV for WS*, respectively, which is compatible with the liquid-drop analysis of Lattimer and Lim . The density dependence of the mean-field isoscalar and isovector effective mass, and the neutron-proton effective masses splitting for neutron matter are simultaneously investigated. The results are generally consistent with those from the Skyrme Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov calculations and nucleon optical potentials, and the standard deviations are large and increase rapidly with density. A better constraint for the effective mass is helpful to reduce uncertainties of the depth of the mean-field potential. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
