Where can I find data on spark gap distance for copper tube spark gap, also number of tubes for given size Tesla coil?

The tubes can be rotated to adjust the distance. The breakdown voltage in this case is around 2 kV/mm for each gap. A blower is used to keep the
gap cool, otherwise the plastic base (not a great idea) melts.
