Hi !

I'm trying to find the first n roots of an equation involving Bessel
Functions and to create a List of them.

The best thing I find so far is :
n = 10;
For[i = 0, i < n,
  Print[FindRoot[- k BesselJ[1, k] + 30 BesselJ[0, k] == 0, {k,
        2.32 + i Pi}]];

And the result I get is :


Does anyone know what {k->3.2} means ? And how I could get only the value
3.2 instead of {k->3.2} in order to create a list?

Thank you
