How long is a lap in a swimming pool?
A lap is two lengths of a pool as defined by most competitive swimmers and Webster's Dictionary. The distance of a lap depends on how long the pool is. Most pools are either 25 yards or 25 meters, thus making a lap 50 yards or meters. You would need to ask the pool director if the particular pool is meters or yards as it can be difficult to tell, unless you are a really good judge of distance. Other pools can be 50 meters. Olympic-size pools are 50 meters x 25 meters.

Length of a Lap Pool A common lap of a pool is 50 meters internationally. Swimming competitions are generally held in 50m pools. Many colleges or well equipped facilities ha…ve pools that are 50 meters. A lap can be either 25 meters or 50 meters. In the Olympics and major National events they swim 'long course' events which means the pool is 50 meters in length. However, there are still short course swim meets like 'Fina' and the pool is only 25 meters. In America there are also lots of yard pools both in 25 yard length (short course) and 50 yard length (long course) varieties
Either 25 yards or 25 meters. There are even some pools that are 50 meters. But usually the pools are 25 yards.
From one end to another end of the pool, it would be 25 meters.
The standard for a pool depends on the season of swimming. Long course season, which you see in the Olympics, takes place in a pool 50 meters in length. Short course sea…son, which takes place in the winter, takes place in a 25 yard pool. Most neighborhood pools are 25 yards.
depends on how long your pools lanes are. Mine is 25meters.
If the pool is 25 yards , and a lap is one length of the pool, then it would take 70.4 laps to go a mile. In a 25 meter pool you need to swim 64.4 laps. In collegiate swim…ming competitions, the swimmers in the mile event swim 64 laps in 25m pools.
A girl swims 3 laps in a pool the 1st lap took 8 minutes the second lap took 8.4 minutes the 3rd lap took 7.3 minutes how long did it take her to swim all 3 laps?
3 laps: 1st lap= 8min 2nd= 8.4min 3rd= 7.3min Total time= (8+8.4+7.3) = 23.7min It took the girl 23.7min to swim 3 laps
I have heard that it is once only across the length of the pool not up and back.
One lap of the pool is usually 25 meters or yards. An Olympic pool is 50 meters long.
A lap is defined as swiming up and back, or a total of 50 yards in a 25 yard pool. Most good swimmers can swim one lap in uder 30 seconds. When swimming 50 yards 32 times i…n a row most good swimmers would average under 50 seconds a lap. Meaning an avage good swimmer can swim 32 laps in about 26 minutes.
If a lap is going from one end of the pool to the other once, then it would be 88 laps.
117 1/3 times down the length of the pool (or) 58 2/3 of down AND back.
you are going very slow
Assuming a 25 yards long pool, 10 laps (20 lengths of the pool).
50 meter dash 75 meter 100 meter 125 meter 150 meter 175 meter et. It just goes up by 25 meters until about 5,000. I'm happy if that helped you if it didn't sorry.
36 ft is 432 inches which equals 10.9 meters assuming you mean a lap is a full lap as in both ways (there and back) across the length of the pool or 21.8 meters it will take 1…00/21.8 or about 5 full laps
