Simplify[Sqrt[Meter^2/Second^2] Second/Meter^2,
 {Meter > 0, Second > 0}]


Sqrt[Meter^2/Second^2] Second/Meter^2 // PowerExpand

Working with units I get correct result:

Sqrt[Meter^2/Second^2] Second)/Meter^2

  How to tell Mathematica to simplify the result to Meter^-1?
Simplify and FullSimplify doesn't do the job.
Thanks in advance,
