Lemma 15.111.1. Let $R$ be a ring. Let $a^\bullet : K^\bullet \to L^\bullet $ be a map of complexes of $R$-modules satisfying (1), (2), (3) above. If $L^\bullet $ has rank $0$, then $\det (a^\bullet )$ maps the canonical element $\delta (L^\bullet )$ to $\delta (K^\bullet )$.

**Proof.**
Write $M^ i = \mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(a^ i)$. Thus we have a map of short exact sequences

By Lemma 15.108.3 we know that $\det (d_ K)$ corresponds to $\det (d_ M) \otimes \det (d_ L)$ as maps. Unwinding the definitions this gives the required equality. $\square$
