Hi,

k->3.2  mean Rule[k,3.2] it can be used with ReplaceAll[] to get
3.2


if you use the correct syntax of For[] and ReplaceAll[] you "code"
looks like

n = 10;
For[i = 0, i < n, i++,
  Print[k /. 
      FindRoot[-k BesselJ[1, k] + 30 BesselJ[0, k] == 0, {k, 2.32 + i
Pi}]
    ]
 ]

What you mean is probably

Block[{k},
  (k /. FindRoot[-k BesselJ[1, k] + 30 BesselJ[0, k] == 0, {k, 
              2.32 + # Pi}]) & /@ Table[i, {i, 0, 9}]
  ]

that will return the list of the zeros.
Have you ever considered to read some pages in 
the manual ? 
It is incredible large and called "The Mathematica Book"
but it helps to find out the correct syntax of For[] and it
has an index where you can find what -> mean

Regards
  Jens
