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

To calculate the swim distance, multiply the number of laps by the length per lap.

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))

FAQ

What units of measurement can be used with the Swim Distance Calculator?
The Swim Distance Calculator can use meters (m), yards (yds), and feet (ft) as units of measurement for both the length of one lap and the total swim distance.

How does the number of laps affect the total swim distance?
The total swim distance increases directly in proportion to the number of laps swum. This means that as you increase the number of laps, the total distance swum also increases, calculated by multiplying the length of one lap by the total number of laps.

Can the Swim Distance Calculator be used for different types of swimming pools?
Yes, the Swim Distance Calculator can be used for different types of swimming pools, as long as you know the length of one lap in the pool. It doesn’t matter whether the pool is short-course (25 meters/yards) or long-course (50 meters); the calculator can accurately compute the distance swum based on the input provided.
