Assuming that s is seconds, no.

s^-1 can't equal s.

Yes. E.g. if [itex]s = \sqrt {10}[/itex]

[tex]

32.7s^{-1} = \frac{32.7}{s}

[/tex]

32.7s^{-1} = \frac{32.7}{s}

is the exponent for the unit, or the number?

if it is for the number

(1/32.7) s

if its for the unit, it would indicate (1/s) which to me means per second.

If you want the magnitude in the denominator, you have to write,

[tex]\frac{32.7}{s} = \frac{1}{\frac{s}{32.7}} = \frac{1}{.3058s}[/tex]
