    Find units for a contstant by simplifying

    Hi I am having a hard time simplifying this so I can find out what the units for h are could you help?

    (m/s)^2(kg/m^2)^3= h (kg)^4


    I came up with h= kg/m4s2 which I am pretty sure is not right but I don't really know how to check.

    Thanks

    \dfrac{m^2}{s^2} \cdot \dfrac{kg^3}{m^6} = h \cdot kg^4<br />

    \dfrac{m^2}{m^6} \cdot \dfrac{kg^3}{kg^4} \cdot \dfrac{1}{s^2} = h <br />


    \dfrac{1}{m^4 \cdot kg \cdot s^2} = h
