Questions about independence between random variable and $\sigma$-algebra

Given a probability measure space $(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, P)$, if a random variable X and a sub $\sigma$-algebra $\mathcal{A}$ are independent, I was wondering why:

1. $$E (X|\mathcal{A}) = (EX)I_Ω;$$
2. $$E(I_A \times X) = P (A)EX, \, \forall A \in \mathcal{A}.$$

Thanks and regards!

Tim: Either my hints allowed you to answer the question or they did not, in both cases you have ways of signaling it. –  Did May 7 '11 at 13:12

Hint for 1.: Recall the definition of the random variable $E(X|\mathcal{A})$. Hint for 2.: Recall the definition of $X$ being independent from $\mathcal{A}$. (And add the condition that $X$ is integrable.)
