The drag force acting on a car travelling at a speed v is given by the equation F=kAv^2
Where A is the area of the front of the car.
Show that a suitable unit for the quantity k is kgm-3.
Mark scheme answer:
F= kgms-2
or
A=m2
V=ms-1

Which is K=kgm-3

I am confused could someone show the working out clearly involving all steps and equations used.
Please help.
