Answer:

Essentially only one condition is required: an unbalanced force.

Explanation:

Newton's Second Law of Motion can be stated as #a=F/m#, where #F# is the unbalanced force acting on a mass #m#.

Newton's First Law clarifies that, when there is no unbalanced force acting, there is no acceleration.
