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 for a
Lorentz manifold. The theorem says that a projective structure and
a suitably defined compatible conformal structure 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.
