Possible causes are (if only vibrating by one front wheel) your wheel bearing has gone bad and needs replaced or the cv joint on the half-shaft has worn out. Need to have it checked to be sure but sounds more like the half-shaft.
agree with first answer cv axle, but also check your engine mounts as there is one on the passenger side that can cause engine to move around under acceleration
