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
Depends on how big the swimming pool is.
Answer . One length of an Olympic size swimming pool is 50mtrs or 164.041 feet, so a lap (2 lengths) would be 328.082 feet
Some people feel that a lap and a length are the same thing. They will use the terms interchangeably. Competitive swimmers do not often talk about lengths, but when they do th…ey usually mean one complete length of the pool. As such, a lap generally refers to two lengths. For example in a 25 yard pool, a mile is ~35 laps, or ~70 lengths. Webster's II New College Dictionary uses the following definition for lap in regard to pools: "2.b. One complete length of a straight course, as in a swimming pool."
lap swim is swimming from the starting place of the pool up to the other end of the pool. . .
well when u are in a pool u go down and that's pretty much a lap
a length is 25 yards/meters if you are in a short course pool a lap is 50 yards/meters if you are in a short course pool
In a short course pool it is 25 meter and in a long pool or olympic size pool it is 50 meters. 25 meters= 82.02 feet. 50 meters= 164.04 feet. :0
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.
88 laps found by 60 feet per lap, and 5280 feet per mile, so 5280/60=88.
If the length of the pool is 25 feet then one lap of the pool equals 50 feet. Therefore, you would have to swim 105.6 laps to equal one mile.
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.
No. A lap is two lengths and two widths of a swimming pool. You have to go around the swimming pool to complete one lap.
A lap in an Olympic size pool is down and back, it's just farther than doing a lap in a 25 meter pool. A lap in an Olympic pool is 100 M whereas a lap in a regular pool is 50 …M.
