I am new in Python and I would like to ask something.

My code reads a csv file. I want to use one column. I want to use an equation which calculates, depending on the value of the column I want to use, several values. I am using commands for and if.

but command window shbows me the error:

TypeError: 'Series' object is not callable

Could you help me?

What I have tried:

my code:
import math
import pandas as pd
import matplotlib as mpl
import numpy as np

dfArxika = pd.read_csv('AIALL.csv', usecols=[0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10], header=None, index_col=False)


for i in range(len(A)):
    if (A[i] >= 4.8 and A[i] < 66):
        IA[i]= (2.2*(math.log10(A[i]/66))+5.5)
    elif (A[i] >= 66):
        IA[i]= 3.66*(math.log10(A[i]/66)+5.5)

Index values on lists must be in square brackets [ and ], not parentheses.
    if (A[i] >= 4.8 and A[i] < 66):
# etc.

Please study The Python Tutorial — Python 3.7.9 documentation[^] for correct syntax.

Excuse me , I have tried your solution but command window shows me:
TypeError: cannot do label indexing on <class 'pandas.core.indexes.range.rangeindex'=""> with these indexers [122.59] of <class 'float'="">

Your for statement is wrong (which I missed). You are trying to use i as the index to each element in A so it should be:
for i in range(len(A)):

Alternatively if you leave the for statement as is then you do not need A[i] as it is set to iterate over each element in the list, so you just replace each occurrence of A[i] with simply i. Although I strongly recommend you stop using single characters for your variables and use meaningful names.

Also as I suggested above, go and work through the Python tutorials so you get a proper understanding of the language and its syntax.

ok, I tried this but it shows me:
NameError: name 'IA' is not defined (IA is the equation I show you in my code solution above)

Which line does that message refer to? Please use the Improve question link above, and add the details to your original question.

This message refer to line
IA=3.66*log10(A(i)/66)+5.5 (line 14)
