I am trying to get used to enginering prefixes and such. I would like to come up with a general way to reduce garbage composite units like Mg/ms into proper units.

Anybody have a general way. I know that my end result is to have no prefixes in denominator (except kg).

Should I break everthing up into scientific notation and tryto build the denominator to the base unit (in this case seconds) or what? How do you go about these.

I am sure after awhile I won't even think about it, but for now I would like a logical method if possible.

Thanks,

Casey
