Relations store instances of functional dependencies in their rows. All primary keys represent a functional dependency, since each primary key functionally determines the entire row. Since the primary key determines the entire row, if a primary key were duplicated in a relation, then the entire row would have to be duplicated. Since a relation can contain no duplicate rows, the primary key must be unique.
