Master cylinder sizing, dumb question?

Is there a formula available to calculate what size master cylinder is needed for a brake system considering vehicle weight and fluid capacity? I've done a search through the old posts and all I see is try this one or that one.... Is this a big brake trade secret? I've got a book on brake systems and it doesn't elaborate or suggest any way of choosing a suitable master cylinder either.

I've got two vehicles in the works that will be needing master cylinders soon. The first one on the list is my Son's 70 Nova with factory 11" discs on the front and 95 Explorer rear discs.

Or should I do what it seems everyone else does and just keep trying different components untill I get something that works?
