Without introducing a conversion factor, how can it not be "1". Mathematically, it has to be "1". It is not an approach. If the area of a unit square is not "1" then the derivative of x^2 is not 2x. If the derivative of x^2 is not 2x then Gauss's law breaks and atoms either become clumps of singularity or fly apart. The universe will cease to be as it is.:) The area of a unit square is exactly 1.
