ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "Barlow's rule" is presented. It refers to the chemistry rule for valency introduced by English chemists, William Barlow and William Jackson Pope. According to the rule, the volume occupied by the atoms in a given molecule is proportional to the valencies of the molecular atoms.
