hello everyone
can anyone please tell we how the os kernel determines the size of
memory to be allocated
to a program while it is sheduled, here i mean how it determines the
size of the heap and the stack memory to be allocated to it .
all help is appreciated

Your question doesn't really make sense. First, it's not clear whether
it's about physical memory or virtual memory. Second, it implies that
memory is allocated when a process is scheduled, which is not the
case. Memory is allocated when the process requests it.

What are you trying to ask? It's not clear.
