Given,

Dielectric constant of the inserted mica sheet = 6

Thickness of the sheet = 3mm

Supply Voltage V = 100V

Initial Capacitance = C_{initial}=1.771 *10^{-11}F

Final Capacitance = KC_{initial}=6*1.771 *10^{-11}F=106*10^{-12}F

Final Charge on the capacitor = Q_{final}=C_{final}V=106*10^{-12}*100=106*10^{-10}C

Hence on inserting the sheet charge on each plate changes to 106*10^{-10}C.
