Units for pressure?

  1. Jan 13, 2013 #1
    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
