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
One lap of the pool is usually 25 meters or yards. An Olympic pool is 50 meters long.
Most are 25 meters, although some are 50 meters. Olympic pools are 50 meters.
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 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.
Either 25 yards or 25 meters. There are even some pools that are 50 meters. But usually the pools are 25 yards.
I have heard that it is once only across the length of the pool not up and back.
2. 50 x 2 = 100
There are 1600 meters in a mile 50 meters in a lap 1600/50=32 32 laps

Internationally, it is usually 50 meters, but in the US they have both 50 meter and 25 yard pools. In most places in the US, it is a 25 yard pool because the US measuring syst…em uses yards. In competitive swimming, during the school year the 25 yard pool is used, but in the summer the 50 meter pool is used.
If a lap is going from one end of the pool to the other once, then it would be 88 laps.
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
