Unipolar induction phenomenon is a special kind of electromagnetic induction. There are two quite opposite theoretical explanations for this phenomenon, i.e., the N theory and the M theory. The research of unipolar induction has made significant progress, but there is no final conclusion by now. In this paper, an experiment of inversely rotating double Faraday disks and double magnets are designed, and the unipolar induction phenomenon is verified by means of theoretical calculation and experiment. Comparing and analyzing the theoretical calculation and experiment results, our experimental results support the N theory, that is to say, our experiment shows that the magnetic field does not rotate when the magnet rotates.
