If you increase the angle of inclination, does the kinetic friction an object experiences while moving down this inclination increase?

I was thinking since Kinetic friction= coffient of friction * Normal force

that it does not change, since the coefficient and normal force stay the same?

    1. No
    2. Normal force does change when the angle of inclination changes. Just exactly what does Normal mean?
    3. It does change.
