We performed an experiment for the verification of existing theoretical formulas for the electric field potential of a rotating magnetized sphere. Measurements of the electric field potential differences across cylindrical capacitors were carried out. Experimental results are essentially in accord with the potential obtained using the special relativity transformations and contradict formula for the quadrupole field potential.
