Peter,

you can use the Mathematica command Apply with a level specification to
achieve what you want. Of course, this is only one of many possible
solutions; an alternative is shown in In[4].

In[1]:= F[a_, b_, c_, x_] := a Sin[b x + c]

In[2]:= k = {{a1, b1, c1}, {a2, b2, c2}, {a3, b3, c3}};

In[3]:= Apply[F[##, x]&, k, 2]

Out[3]= {a1 Sin[c1 + b1 x], a2 Sin[c2 + b2 x], a3 Sin[c3 + b3 x]}

In[4]:= F[Sequence @@ #, x]& /@ k

Out[4]= {a1 Sin[c1 + b1 x], a2 Sin[c2 + b2 x], a3 Sin[c3 + b3 x]}

HTH,

Eckhard
