One lap is usually seen as there-and-back, so a lap is twice the length of the pool. So a lap in a 25 m pool is 50 m. 6 laps is 6 x 50 = 300 m One mile is 1608 meters. 300 / 1608 = 0.19 miles
One lap is usually measured as the distance from one end of the pool to the other and back. For an Olympic-size pool, which is 50 meters in length, one lap is 100 meters.
One lap is usually seen as there-and-back, so a lap is twice the length of the pool. So a lap in a 50 m pool is 100 m. One mile is 1608 meters. 1/2 mile is 804 meters. 804 / 100 = 8 So 8 laps and a turn is 0.5 miles.
In a standard pool for competitive swimming, it would only be one lap. In an Olympic sized pool, it would be half of one lap.
no a lap is down and back
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.
One lap of the pool is usually 25 meters or yards. An Olympic pool is 50 meters long.
From one side to the other is one lap 25 meters or yards depending on the pool
This can be determined by dividing the total distance to be swum by the distance of one lap. For example: For a short course pool of 25 yards, one lap is the distance from one end of the pool to the other and back. One lap in this pool is 50 yards. Therefore, dividing the total distance to be swum by the length of one lap, we get, 437/50=8.74 laps so it takes 8.74 laps to swim 437 yards in this pool.
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.
It depends on what you call a lap. Does down and back equal one lap or does from one end to the other equal one lap? 25 yards is 75 feet. 50 x 75 =3750 feet if one end to the other is one lap. 7500 feet if down and back is one lap. 3750feet is roughly 3/4 of one mile. 7500 feet is roughly 1 1/2 miles.
