Drag coefficent and Drag force

I'm trying to calculate the drag coefficent and drag force on a sphere with diameter 500mm (I'm using mm as measure). My fluid is water and the Reynold coefficient is Re=0.025 and the velocity is 5.0E-5 because I need a laminar behaviour in my simulation and I used the code to put in the controlDict file. The problem that I have is the results of the drag coefficent is very big, like 1.3E+11. I'm don't know what is happenig because I have reviewed all data.
If somebody can help me, it would be terrific.

If you have physically reasonable pressure distribution, just check Aref and Lref in forceCoeffs section of your controlDict.
Or show controlDict here at least.
practice makes perfect
