Enter the total length of one lap (m/yds,ft) and the total number of laps into the Swim Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Swim Distance.

## Swim Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Swim Distance.

Dswim = L L * #L

• Where Dswim is the Swim Distance (m,yds,ft)
• LL is the total length of one lap (m,yds,ft)
• #L is the total number of laps

## How to Calculate Swim Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Swim Distance.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total length of one lap (m,yds,ft).
• The total length of one lap (m,yds,ft) is given as: 50.
2. Next, determine the total number of laps.
• The total number of laps is provided as: 40.
3. Finally, calculate the Swim Distance using the equation above:

Dswim = L L * #L

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dswim = 50 * 40 = 2,000 ((m,yds,ft))

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total length of one lap (m,yds,ft) = 50

total number of laps = 7

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

Dswim = L L * #L = ?
