Varactor characteristics aren't linear http://spraguegoodman.com/pdfs/950.pdf The only way to plot a curve would be to either do an actual Vr versus capacitance or simulate it on one of the many electronic simulation programs. Assuming you meant 200μ...

Initial charge is Q = CV = 19.2 nC Mica has a dielectric constant of about 7 (varies a lot, depending on type and source) so the capacitance changes to 2.4 nF x 7 = 16.8 nF new charge is 16.8 nF x 8 = 134...

Q = C*V C = Q/V = (1.2*10^-6/10) = 1.2*10^-7 Capacitors in parallel add, so if we need n capacitors C = 1.2*10^-7 = n*0.25*10^-12 n = 1.2*10^-7/(0.25*10^-12) = 4.8*10^5 = 480,000 <<<
