"Look up" is the phrasal verb. We don't use "for". It means you search for information (which already exists and is documented somewhere). "I will look up for some examples" is incorrect. "Find" in your example means discover. Maybe the solution exists; maybe it doesn't yet, so you have to create a solution. Either way, it's not a case of looking in an index.
