Abstract
I state and prove, in the context of a space having only the
metrical and affine 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 metric structure of a Newtonian
spacetime model up to constant factors, and for fixing its affine
structure as well. The theorem 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.
