Answer:

Changing the direction in which the force is applied. Alternatively by Newton's 2nd law (F=ma), you can decelerate an object if you increase its mass.

Explanation:

Changing the direction in which the force is applied will cause acceleration as the velocity will change.

Hence even if the size of the force remains the same, the direction will be changing, and hence the velocity (since velocity has size and direction).

For example, an object in circular motion is accelerating, even if the magnitude of force acting on it does not.

Alternatively by Newton's 2nd law (F=ma), you can decelerate an object if you increase its mass.
