It's like this: the more fuel you spray into the engine, the more power it will develop. Meaning, of course, that it will go faster. So when you press/twist the accelerator, it causes the fuel supply to the engine to increase, causing....well, acceleration. Note that his is a very brief explanation, so I've left some things out.

For most cars, the accelerator pedal is connected to a throttle body which opens up depending on how much the pedal is pushed. The throttle allows air to enter the combustion chamber where a series of controlled explosions drive the pistons transferring power to the transmission and then to axles (overly simplified). Some cars have a throttle position sensor that will control fuel input based on the position of the throttle. Some have a mass air sensor that measures the amount of air entering and adjusts fuel to a preset ratio. Some newer cars do not connect the accelerator to the throttle directly (drive by wire). The ECU determines the throttle position based on the pedal position.
