Abstract
I state and prove, in the context of a space having only the
metrical structure imposed by the geometrized version of Newtonian
gravitational theory, a theorem analagous to that of Weyl's in a
Lorentzian space. The theorem, loosely speaking, says that a
projective structure and a suitably defined compatible conformal
structure on such a space jointly suffice for fixing the metrical
structure of a Newtonian spacetime model up to constant factors. It
allows one to give a natural, physically compelling interpretation
of the spatiotemporal geometry of a geometrized Newtonian gravity
spacetime manifold, in close analogy with the way Weyl's Theorem
allows one to do in general relativity.
