Could someone explain why we know for sure that the concentration of OH- will be twice the amount of Ba(OH)2? Like I get that it will be twice an amount because of the coefficient of 2, but why do we assume it's twice the concentration of Ba(OH)2?

There are two molecules of OH within the molecule, making the ratio 1:2 of concentration of Ba(OH)2 to OH, making there be double the amount (or concentration) of the OH molecules.

The equation is

Ba(OH)2 ---> Ba2+ + 2 OH-

So for every mole of Ba(OH)2, you have 2 moles of OH-, so you multiply the concentration by 2.
