1. 52.1 mL of .150M solution contains
.0521*.150 = .00782 moles of Ba(OH)2

Since the reaction is

2HNO3 + Ba(OH)2 = Ba(NO3)2 + 2H2O

we need .0156 moles of HNO3

.0156moles/.110L = 0.142moles/L = .142M

2. 2HNO3 + Ba(OH)2 ==> 2H2O + Ba(NO3)2
mols Ba(OH)2 = M x L = ?
Use the equation coefficients to convert mols Ba(OH)2 to mols HNO3. Note: that's mols HNO3 = 2*mols Ba(OH)2.
Then M HNO3 = mols HNO3/L HNO3. You know L and mols, solve for M.
