You are correct! I should have said a sphere with 1 meter radius, not
diameter. I found the energy needed to raise to voltage from 0 to 1 Mv
with respect to ground. 2Mv reqires four times the energy. If the sphere
does not arc, soon the motor will not be able to force charge into it at a
given rate. The power is probably the intergral of this function over
time....
Glad someone is checking up on me :))
