Is it possible to simplify the expression

4 Newton/2 Kilogram

to yield Meter/Second^2?

Mathematica just outputs

2 Newton/Kilogram

Of course it is possible to Convert it using


but that's only possible, if I know, what's coming out at the end of the
caculation. It would be nice if Mathematica itself would take care of using
appropriate "versions" of the different derived SI-units.

Any solutions?
