If you press F1 (to bring up the help system), type in loop, and press 
return, you will see links to a number of looping functions. Each one 
will have examples that can be cut and pasted into your notebook and 
altered to suit your needs!

Table will also do what you require without using a loop, and you might 
want to look up Map as well.
