    added below the very first definition at kernel a remark that spells out the universal property more explicitly. Also added mentioning of some basic examples.

    what is "p"?

    Remark 2.2. More explicitly, this characterizes the object ker(f) as the object (unique up to unique isomorphism) that satisfies the following universal property:
    for every object C and every morphism h:C→A such that f∘h=0 is the zero morphism, there is a unique morphism ϕ:C→ker(f) such that h=p∘ϕ.

    which substituted for a TeX array defining p


    which I don’t know if ever worked

    (didn’t there used to be a rollback button?)
