You can use the much simpler Table instead of For. It is usually good to
evaluate the functions you are plotting before putting them into a Plot
statement. So:

R3 = 6; 
functions = Table[2*R3*Sin[ArcCos[x/R3]]*e3, {e3, 0, 3}] 
Plot[functions, {x, -2 R3, 2 R3}]

Dear Mathgroup,

when I am using the loop for with plot is not working.

here is the example
For[e3=0,e3<4,e3++,Plot[{2*R3*Sin[ArcCos[x/R3]]*e3}, {x, -2R3,2 R3}]]
How can I sort out the problem?
Best regards
