Most Swimming Pools are either 50m or 25m in length, in feet these are 164 feet and 82 feet respectively
Nothing really, to swim the length of the pool is to do one lap. To swim 2 lengths is to swim two laps, so on and so forth.
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.
Depends on the pool's length...
1 mile = 5280 feet 1 lap = 36 feet (1 lap = 1 length) 5280 / 36 = 146.66 laps This would seem a poor choice of pool to use for lap swimming.
For whatever reason in swimming one lap is considered one length, when in reality one lap should be returning to where you started.
Depends on the length of the lap pool in question.
One length of an Olympic size swimming pool is 50mtrs or 164.041 feet, so a lap (2 lengths) would be 328.082 feet
it depends on how long it is....but if its 8ft or more that's a lap
When a coach says 1 length, they usually mean lap of the pool. One lap could be 25 yards/meters, or 50 yards/meters. It depends of what pool you swim at.
lap swim is swimming from the starting place of the pool up to the other end of the 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
There are 1,609.344 meters in a mile. When 1 length = 1 lap, you would need to complete 64.3 laps to swim a mile.
