    It is accelerating to a certain extent

    Assuming we're working in an inertial frame of reference, Newton's Laws tell us that an unbalanced force will cause the object to accelerate.

    According to the Second Law, F = ma, so if the net force is non-zero, the acceleration must be non-zero.
