What exactly is the difference between the categorical product of two objects and the fiber product (pullback) of two morphisms with the same two objects as domains? However I look at it, the morphisms in the definition appear superfluous.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone display a category where products and pullbacks generally are not equal?

Thanks in advance.
