In this paper, we focus on Sobolev inequality in the context of Sharma-Mittal entropy. Using this new inequality, generalized entropic uncertainty relation in accordance with Sharma-Mittal entropy is derived and the pseudoadditivity relation has been obtained. This new entropic uncertainty relation has then been applied to physical examples such as one dimensional harmonic oscillator and Pösch-Teller potential. Finally, it has been shown that for certain values of the parameters of Sharma-Mittal measure, the present results reduce to the corresponding results of Shannon, Renyi and Tsallis measures.
