Lemma 26.21.9. Let $f : X \to T$ and $g : Y \to T$ be morphisms of schemes with the same target. Let $h : T \to S$ be a morphism of schemes. Then the induced morphism $i : X \times _ T Y \to X \times _ S Y$ is an immersion. If $T \to S$ is separated, then $i$ is a closed immersion. If $T \to S$ is quasi-separated, then $i$ is a quasi-compact morphism.

Proof. By general category theory the following diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ X \times _ T Y \ar[r] \ar[d] & X \times _ S Y \ar[d] \\ T \ar[r]^{\Delta _{T/S}} \ar[r] & T \times _ S T } \]

is a fibre product diagram. The lemma follows from Lemmas 26.21.2, 26.17.6 and 26.19.3. $\square$

For the sake of having some reference that is actually instructive, here's a neat proof of the cartesianity of the square
