The F–index of a (molecular) graph is defined as the sum of cubes of the vertex degrees of the graph. In this paper, we compute this topological index for some special graphs such as Wheel graph, Barbell graph and Friendship graph. Moreover, the effects on the F–index are observed when some operations such as edge switching, edge moving and edge separating are applied to the graphs. Finally, we investigate degeneracy of F–index for small graphs.https://ijmc.kashanu.ac.ir/article_70875_a7168a9c32e5ec25f431f0474ad9c70f.pdf
