I want to get the output: 5V - 25mA from 24VDC-0.75A with IC 7805. So what should be the value of C1 and C0? I need a formula for my report. thanks in advance

Your data sheet probably says that neither capacitor is actually required if the regulator is close to the input filter capacitor.
What is optimal is a function of how quickly and how much the output current changes as well as the input filter capacitor distance and size.
If it's a digital circuit, something like a 1uF/10V X7R capacitor on the output and a 47uF/50V electrolytic on the input will work just fine. They're often specified with 0.33uF on the input and 0.1uF on the output but there is nothing magic about those values, and the 7805 is unconditionally stable regardless of output capacitor ESR, so more capacitance means better transient load response. Ceramic capacitors much larger than 0.1uF used to be expensive, but no longer (the 7805 is a 1970s era design).
I use a .1 uF electrolytic on the input, then very short leads with a .33 non-electrolytic right at the microcontroller, like so:
btw, this is a 7809 feeding into the Vin pin so the on-board regulator has an easier job of supplying 5V to the rest of the Nano.
I would never recommend feeding directly into the 5V pin, when it comes to Arduino. It is best to let the on-board regulator stay between Vin and the rest of it.
