(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I've an equation here: h = 3270 Pa / 1,0 g/cm^3 × 9,81 m/s^2 = 33 cm

How did those units cancel out to make itcm? That's something I don't get.

2. Relevant equations

Given above.

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried to cancel them out by looking at the same unit in the numerator and denominator such as, for example m / m , so m cancels out and so on but I don't get it. Does anyone know or can anyone explain why the answer is in centimeters? How do the units cancel out in the given equation? Thank you
