Add さ to adjectives to express a degree or amount
Construction: -i adjectives:
Remove the trailing い and add さ

What is the height of an elephant
NOTE: The さ shows a degree; this can be a higher, lower, wider, thinner, etc amount. (we could be asking the height of an ant)
Construction: -na adjectives:
Just add the さ without the な
kono kuruma no shizukasa wa odoroku beki desu.
This car's quietness is amazing.
NOTE: The finished product (adjective + さ) becomes a noun phrase and is treated as a noun grammatically.
