How do we calculate the cable size for electrical installations?

Electrical wire size is directly dependant on the load amperage that is connected to it. The higher the load amperage, the larger the cross sectional area of the wire needs to be. The connected amperage to a conductor is determined by a group of electrical experts and their results are then written into the latest addition of the electrical code book of the country in which you live.

Can an electric range be powered from the same circuit as an electric dyer?

No. The two appliances usually have dedicated circuits. The range will have a two pole 40 amp breaker and be fed with a 3-C #8 copper cable. The dryer will have a 30 amp two pole breaker and be fed with a 3-C # 10 copper cable. As you can see by powering a 40 amp device from a 30 amp breaker, full operation of the range will trip the 30 amp breaker.
