Separate spheres widely.

Connect them with a long wire.

Charge the system.

Remove the wire.

Now you have two spheres at the same potential and sufficiently isolated

from each other to allow a closed form calculation giving:

Q1/R1^2 = {Q2/R2^2}*{R2/R1}

IOW the ratio of the surface charge densities is the inverse of the ratio

of the radii. Check my math :)
