Example 10.12.12. Consider the injective map $2 : \mathbf{Z}\to \mathbf{Z}$ viewed as a map of $\mathbf{Z}$-modules. Let $N = \mathbf{Z}/2$. Then the induced map $\mathbf{Z} \otimes \mathbf{Z}/2 \to \mathbf{Z} \otimes \mathbf{Z}/2$ is NOT injective. This is because for $x \otimes y\in \mathbf{Z} \otimes \mathbf{Z}/2$,

Therefore the induced map is the zero map while $\mathbf{Z} \otimes N\neq 0$.
