will a 1gbit switch speed be downgraded if a 100mbit switch is connected to it?

Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I have a 100mbit switch connected to a 1gbit switch but will our whole network operate at 100mbit because of this one switch?  

Is there a 1Gbit bus line that all 16 ports share or each port is independent and the bus line bandwidth runs at 16gbits+?
