Elementary Category Theory  3
Let \( \mathcal{C} \) be an abelian category and let \( f \ \colon X \longrightarrow Y \) be a morphism in \( \mathcal{C} \). Show that the diagram
\[ \xymatrix{ K \ar[d] \ar[r]^{0_{K}} & 0 \ar[d] \\ X \ar[r]_f &Y} \]
is a pullback diagram if and only if \( K = Ker(f) \).
\[ \xymatrix{ K \ar[d] \ar[r]^{0_{K}} & 0 \ar[d] \\ X \ar[r]_f &Y} \]
is a pullback diagram if and only if \( K = Ker(f) \).
