Although many indices are strongly correlated with various chemical as well as physical properties of a molecular compound but some of them lack proper geometrical interpretations. A newly introduced index called Sombor index is able to catch the attention of the researchers because of its connection with the notion of “2-norm”. In this paper, we propose the status version of the Sombor index. Further, we discuss a generalization of our proposed index and carry out QSPR analysis. Some mathematical properties of the generalization are also discussed.
