A Sprint Burndown chart is a graphical representation of the work that's left in a sprint. A burndown chart can be used to show how much work has been completed, and what percentage remains for the team to complete.
The original use of the burndown chart was to represent the number of sprints (or stories) that were left in a project which was managed using an agile methodology. The Y-axis represented the effort required to complete the project (in sprints/stories), and the X-axis the time left.
