The magnitudes h of Planck's constant and c of light speed are equal if and only if A = 1, where A = h/c. Since A has the dimensions mass space, A = 1 depends solely upon the choice of units for mass and space and is independent of the unit used for time. Given A = 1, the unit of time then uniquely determines the particular value for the magnitude of h = c.
Keywords: natural units, primitive dimensions
