Lemma 10.38.7. Suppose that $M$ is (faithfully) flat over $R$, and that $R \to R'$ is a ring map. Then $M \otimes_R R'$ is (faithfully) flat over $R'$.

Proof. For any $R'$-module $N$ we have a canonical isomorphism $N \otimes_{R'} (R'\otimes_R M) = N \otimes_R M$. Hence the desired exactness properties of the functor $-\otimes_{R'}(R'\otimes_R M)$ follow from the corresponding exactness properties of the functor $-\otimes_R M$. $\square$

Suppose that $M$ is (faithfully) flat over $R$, and that $R \to R'$
is a ring map. Then $M \otimes_R R'$ is (faithfully) flat over $R'$.
\end{lemma}

\begin{proof}
For any $R'$-module $N$ we have a canonical
isomorphism $N \otimes_{R'} (R'\otimes_R M) = N \otimes_R M$. Hence the desired exactness properties of the functor
$-\otimes_{R'}(R'\otimes_R M)$ follow from
the corresponding exactness properties of the functor $-\otimes_R M$.
