It depends on how fast you want to accelerate the object. The equation is ##\vec{F_{Net}} = m\vec{a}##, or in words, (net force acting on the object) = (mass of the object) x (acceleration of the object). This is Newton's second law. It takes, for example, 1 Newton of force to accelerate a 1kg object at 1m/s2.
