Chart and Graph

My daughter is doing the how salty water makes an egg float experiment. Her project requires a chart and a graph showing results. How would you create these using the results?

My suggestion would be:
Column 1: amount of salt added to the water (assuming you added it slowly in small steps)
Column 2: The height of the egg measured from the bottom.

X axis: The column 1 entries
Y axis: The corresponding column 2 entries

I hope that helps.
Kind Regards
