Okay...i know that when i go to swim practice, i swim for a good hour and a half. i know that while im there(swimming constantly)i burn about 1200 calories. So, it doesnt matter how many laps you swim; its how long and how intense.

well if you want laps, you would have to swim 10-12 laps; there and back counting as one lap. So if you did that you would burn 500 calories, and if you were in a 25 meter pool you would have to swim about 20 laps; there and back counting as one.

It depends on the pool.

The 'standard' length pool in the U.S. is Junior Olympic, which is 25 yards.

That would be 2 lengths (or one lap) to reach 50 yards.

In an Olympic pool, which is 50 meters, one length (or 1/2 lap) would be a tad over 50 yards.

If you aren't sure which type pool you are swimming in, it's probably a Junior Olympic...Olympic pools are not very common (in the U.S.).

There's really too much missing from this question for it to be sensibly answered.

One lap is usually seen as there-and-back, making a lap twice the length of the pool. So a lap in a 50 m pool is 100 m.

How many laps you need to do a certain distance, well, that would depend on how far you're looking to swim.

To find the number of laps required to do a certain distance, take the distance in meters and divide by 100.

32 Lengths (32lengths X 50meters/length = 1600meters = 1 mile)

16 Laps ( lap = 2 lengths)

Assuming a 25 yards long pool, 10 laps (20 lengths of the pool).

500 meters equals just less then 550 yards. 550 divided by 25 is 22. You would have to swim about 22 laps in a 25 yard pool to swim 500 meters.
