Rotational speed is how fast something goes as it revolves around another object, commonly expressed as revolutions per minute (RPM). V~rw. V is your tangential speed and w is rotational speed. The further from the axis you are the faster you move, but your RPMs remain the same. 2. The difference is 5 cms since you have smaller tires on the bike. But since you are moving at the same speed, just limited on your distance, your linear speed does not

It is hard to walk without bending your knees because of the larger rotational inertia that you give them. If you bend your knes, you reduce that inertia so you can rotate them back and forth faster.
