Problem

A loud classroom demonstration involves igniting a hydrogen-filled balloon. The hydrogen within the balloon reacts explosively with oxygen in the air to form water. If the balloon is filled with a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, the explosion is even louder than if the balloon is filled only with hydrogen, and the intensity of the explosion depends on the relative amounts of oxygen and hydrogen within the balloon. Look at the following molecular views representing different amounts of hydrogen and oxygen in four different balloons.

Based on the balanced chemical equation, which balloon will make the loudest explosion?
