I am trying to run a for loop where I call a 'caculate' function on each element of an array, and then save each new calculated variable to a new array that has 1 column and 9 rows.
% numbers is an array of 1 column by 9 rows of individual numbers
newNums = cell(9,1)
for num = numbers
newNum = calculate(num);
newNums([num]) = newNum;
end
Apologies for my code I am brand new to matlab and usually use Python!

Why are you using a cell array to store (what are apparently) numeric scalars?
A simple numeric vector would be more effiicient and probably much easier to process later.
Note that FOR operates over the columns of the input array, which means that following your description the loop will iterate exactly once (and num will be that entire column vector). I doubt that is very useful for you.

I suspect that you need something like this:
nml = numel(numbers);
out = nan(nml,1);
for k = 1:nml
out(k) = calculate(nummbers(k));
end

It looks like you could use some general help on how to write a for loop. Check out the examples on the for documetnation page. Another great place to practice interactively is Ch 13 of MATLAB Onramp.
