It depends on the pool you're in. Swimming 1 lap = swimming 1 length of the pool. Most US high schools have 25 yard pools; whereas international and more competitive pools are a slightly longer 25 meters. Long course pools found at universities and large aquatics centers are often 50 yards/meters; basically 2 laps in one.

How many laps in a 25 yard pool is 5000 yards?

since 1 meter is equal to 1.094 yards, then one lap (one direction) in a 25 meter pool is really 27.35 yards. So then 500 yards at 27.35 yards a lap, you would need to complete a little more than 18 and a quarter laps (18.2815 to be more accurate).

How many laps in a 25 yard pool equals a mile?

There are 36 laps in a 25-yard pool to make a mile. Each lap is 25 yards, and a mile is 1760 yards. So, 1760 yards divided by 25 yards equals 70.4 laps. Since you can't have a fraction of a lap, you would round down to 70 laps, and you would then have swum one mile.
