To prove the equality it suffices to assume that $X$ is integral
and prove that both sides give the same result when capping with
$[E]$, see Lemma \ref{lemma-bivariant-zero}.
The canonical map $\pi^*\mathcal{C} \to \mathcal{O}_E(1)$ vanishes
exactly along $i(X)$. Hence the Koszul complex on the map
\pi^*\mathcal{C} \otimes \mathcal{O}_E(-1) \to \mathcal{O}_E
is a resolution of $i_*\mathcal{O}_X$. In particular we see that
$i_*\mathcal{O}_X$ is a perfect object of $D(\mathcal{O}_E)$
whose chern classes are defined. By Lemma \ref{lemma-compute-koszul}
we conclude
whose chern classes are defined. The vanishing of $c_t(i_*\mathcal{O}_X)$
for $t = 1, \ldots, t - 1$ follows from Lemma \ref{lemma-compute-koszul}.

$c_r(\pi^*\mathcal{C}^\vee \otimes \mathcal{O}_E(1)) \cap [E]$
is $[i(X)]$ by Lemma \ref{lemma-top-chern-class}.
and $\pi^*\mathcal{C}^\vee \otimes \mathcal{O}_E(1)$ has a section $s$
vanishing exactly along $i(X)$.

After replacing $X$ by a scheme locally of finite type over $X$,
it suffices to prove that both sides of the equality have the
same effect on an element $\alpha \in A_*(E)$. Since $C \to X$
is a vector bundle, every cycle class on $C$ is of the form $p^*\beta$
for some $\beta \in A_*(X)$ (Lemma \ref{lemma-vectorbundle}).
Hence by Lemma \ref{lemma-restrict-to-open}
we can write $\alpha = \pi^*\beta + \gamma$ where $\gamma$
is supported on $E \setminus C$. Using the equalities above
it suffices to show that
p^*(\pi_*(c_r(\pi^*\mathcal{C}^\vee \otimes \mathcal{O}_E(1)) \cap [W])) =
when $W \subset E$ is an integral closed subscheme which
is either (a) disjoint from $C$ or (b) is of the form $W = \pi^{-1}Y$
for some integral closed subscheme $Y \subset X$.
Using the section $s$ and Lemma \ref{lemma-top-chern-class} we find
in case (a) $c_r(\pi^*\mathcal{C}^\vee \otimes \mathcal{O}_E(1)) \cap [W] = 0$
and in case (b)
$c_r(\pi^*\mathcal{C}^\vee \otimes \mathcal{O}_E(1)) \cap [W] = [i(Y)]$.
The result follows easily from this; details omitted.

Because $\mathcal{C}_{Z/X} = \mathcal{N}^\vee$

\section{Chow groups and K-groups revisited}

This section is the continuation of Section \ref{section-chow-and-K}.
Let $(S, \delta)$ be as in Situation \ref{situation-setup}.
Let $X$ be locally of finite type over $S$. The K-group
$K_0(\textit{Coh}(X))$ has a canonical increasing filtration
F_kK_0(\textit{Coh}(X)) =
\Im(K_0(\textit{Coh}_{\leq k}(X)) \to K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)))
This is called the filtration by dimension of supports. Observe that
\text{gr}_k K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)) \subset
K_0(\textit{Coh}(X))/F_{k - 1}K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)) =
K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)/\textit{Coh}_{\leq k - 1}(X))
where the equality holds
by Homology, Lemma \ref{homology-lemma-serre-subcategory-K-groups}.
The discussion in Remark \ref{remark-good-cases-K-A} shows
that there are canonical maps
A_k(X) \longrightarrow \text{gr}_k K_0(\textit{Coh}(X))
defined by sending the class of an integral closed subscheme
$Z \subset X$ of $\delta$-dimension $k$ to the class of
$[\mathcal{O}_Z]$ on the right hand side.

Let $(S, \delta)$ be as in Situation \ref{situation-setup}. Assume given a
closed immersion $i : X \to Y$ of schemes locally of finite type over $S$
with $Y$ regular, quasi-compact, affine diagonal, and
$\delta_{Y/S} : Y \to \mathbf{Z}$ bounded. Then the map
A_k(X) \otimes \mathbf{Q}
\text{gr}_k K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)) \otimes \mathbf{Q}
(see above) is an isomorphism of $\mathbf{Q}$-vector spaces.

We have the resolution property for $Y$ by Derived Categories of Schemes, Lemma
\ref{perfect-lemma-regular-resolution-property}. Thus every perfect object
$E$ of $D(\mathcal{O}_Y)$ can be represented by a bounded complex of finite
locally free modules, see Derived Categories of Schemes, Lemma
\ref{perfect-lemma-resolution-property-perfect-complex}. Hence the chern
classes of $E$ are defined (Definition \ref{definition-defined-on-perfect}).
Finally, because $\delta : Y \to \mathbf{Z}$ is bounded,
the perfect objects of $D(\mathcal{O}_Y)$ are exactly given by the objects of
$D^b_{\textit{Coh}}(\mathcal{O}_Y)$, see
Derived Categories of Schemes, Lemma \ref{perfect-lemma-perfect-on-regular}.
Please keep these facts in mind below.

Given a coherent $\mathcal{O}_X$-module $\mathcal{F}$ we can
consider the localized chern class
ch(X \to Y, i_*\mathcal{F}) \in A^*(X \to Y) \otimes \mathbf{Q}
See Definition \ref{definition-localized-chern}
(and comments in the first paragraph).
This construction is additive in short exact sequences, see
Lemma \ref{lemma-additivity-loc-chern-P}. Hence we obtain
\Psi : K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)) \longrightarrow A_*(X) \otimes \mathbf{Q},\quad
[\mathcal{F}] \longmapsto ch(X \to Y, i_*\mathcal{F}) \cap [Y]
where $[Y] = \sum [Y_i] \in A_*(Y)$ is the sum of the classes of the
irreducible components of $Y$.
If $\mathcal{F}$ is (set theoretically) supported on a closed subscheme
$Z \subset X$, then we have
ch(X \to Y, i_*\mathcal{F}) = (Z \to X)_* \circ ch(Z \to Y, i_*\mathcal{F})
by Lemma \ref{lemma-loc-chern-shrink-Z}. We conclude that
$\Psi$ sends $F_kK_0(\textit{Coh}(X))$ into
$\bigoplus_{k' \leq k} A_{k'}(X) \otimes \mathbf{Q}$.
This already defines a map
\Psi_k :
\text{gr}_k K_0(\textit{Coh}(X))
A_k(X) \otimes \mathbf{Q}
for every $k \in \mathbf{Z}$. Thus to finish the proof, it suffices to show
that given an integral closed subscheme $Z \subset X$ of $\delta$-dimension $k$
we have $\Psi_k([\mathcal{O}_Z]) = [Z]$ in $A_k(X)$. By the
above, it suffices to show that
ch(Z \to Y, i_*\mathcal{O}_Z) \cap [Y] = [Z]
A_k(Z) \otimes \mathbf{Q}
Since $A_k(Z) = \mathbf{Z}$, in order to prove this we may replace $Y$
by an open neighbourhood of the generic point $\xi$ of $Z$. Since the maximal
ideal of the regular local ring $\mathcal{O}_{X, \xi}$ is generated by a
regular sequence (Algebra, Lemma \ref{algebra-lemma-regular-ring-CM})
we may assume the ideal of $Z$ is generated by a regular sequence, see
Divisors, Lemma \ref{divisors-lemma-Noetherian-scheme-regular-ideal}.
Thus we deduce the result from Lemma \ref{lemma-actual-computation}.

In the situation of Proposition \ref{proposition-K-tensor-Q}
the map $\Psi$ of the proof defines an isomorphism
K_0(\textit{Coh}(X)) \otimes \mathbf{Q} \cong A_*(X) \otimes \mathbf{Q}
This isomorphism is not canonical: it depends on the choice of the
embedding $X \to Y$ and not just on $X$ itself.
