I'm building a simple electrostic motor powered by a Vandegraf generator. One
of the stators of the motor is hooked up to the bowl of the generator, which
gives that stator a, let's say, negative charge. Where do I get the "positive"
charge from? I've tried hooking to the base of the VDG but don't get a strong
field. Doesn't the VDG have a positive source somewhere?
