How is (density)(gravity)(height) supposed to equal pressure?

density = kg/m^3
gravity = m/s^2
height = m

(kg/m^3)(m/s^2)(m) = (kg/m*s^2)

Pressure is force/area. What do those units work out to?

Wow nevermind... I'm having one of those late nights working on fluid dynamics homework and I started confusing myself with my tiredness
