Help on a function (or a program really)

I need to write a program which does an iterative calculation, but holed
over a value to use for an initial extimate. 
So far I have two functions and a table command. I think there should
suffice, but the program is not cooperating. COuld someone tell me where
I've gone wrong?

denR[c]:= (V:=v;

v= (4*Pi^2*Df*G)/(R^2*dT0*k);


All of the variables except V,v,R, and c are specified beforehand. I
have no idea why this is not working. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. I really don't want to have to dig out Pascal (the laguage,
not the dead mathematician ;) ).

Thank God I'm an atheist.
