If the belayer is 110lbs for a 190lb leader. Assuming that both are tied into opposite ends of the rope on a multi-pitch climb, and the belayer is tied down with a bight of that rope....

How much slack would you leave for a dynamic belay?

On 5.fun slab (minimal if any chance of lead fall/roll, even for a noob)?

Moderate slab?

Vert or overhanging?

Sport vs trad environment?

Single or multi-pitch?

What else do you take into account?

What about when belayer is far heavier?
