    That depends on what you're calling the 'x-component'.

    As you increase the launch angle of a projectile, the vertical component

    of its initial velocity increases, and the horizontal component of its initial

    velocity decreases.

    At the same time, the vertical component of its acceleration is a constant

    9.8 m/s² throughout the event, while the horizontal component of its

    acceleration is a constant zero.
