Theory Question: Major and Minor Losses

I have a theory question that I hope you can help me with.
I'm going through the derivation of the major and minor system loss in natural ventilation and I have the major and minor losses in terms of the density:
However, when I look into these I find them in terms of gravitational acceleration:
How do you switch from one to the other?
The only way I have been able to find to do this is by using the specific weight:
But as this is not in the original equation, has it been assumed negligible as it is so small, therefore making: density = 1 / g
Here are links to the pages I used on EngineeringToolbox:

I hope you can help.
