Independent Conditional Prob.

I want to know that what is the difference between conditional prob. and independent conditional prob.

I confused with that dependent events' formula creates conditional prob's formula; but we use this formula with independent events. I missed some points i think.

Flip two coins, A and B.
  1. What is the chance of both coming up heads?
  2. Given A came up heads, what is the chance of both coming up heads?
The phrase independent conditional probability seems to imply a situation where there are two (or more) conditional probabilities (example#2) that have no bearing on each other.
