In this paper an attempt has been made to find the sum of squares of consecutive primes using G(x), familiarly known as the maximal gap between consecutive primes. Here conjectures of [1,2] namely G(x)∼logx(logx-2loglogx+C), G(x)∼(logx)^2, G(x)∼logx(logx+logloglogx) have been considered. Relations among values of x and the gaps between consecutive primes are presented here. The results are analyzed for the primes ≤〖10〗6and to a gap of 72.
