40 ft = 12.19 meters, so 33 lengths required, (actually 402.3 m). We always used to call them lengths, now people seem to say laps. To my mind a lap is a turn around a circuit, as in motor racing, however use of words does change over time. What do you call a motor racing lap though, to distinguish it from a length?

In a 25 meter long pool it's 16 laps and in a 50 meter pool it's 8 laps

400 metres = 1312.336 ft. divided by a 234 ft. perimeter of the pool = 5.608273 laps around the perimeter of the pool.
