First of all You don't want do that in fact. Apache can't handle request, it rewrites it internally (with mod_dir usually) to anyway.

So why would You want to do it? People usually want the backward.

Anyway - into .htaccess
Option +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
#if it points to existing directory
RewrteCond %{REQUEST_URI} -d
RewriteRule ^(.*)/$ $1 [L,R=301]
