$1.4\times10^{10}$
Step 1: Scientific Notation includes only one non-zero digit in front of the decimal point. Step 2: For 14,000,000,000.0, the decimal point must be moved 10 times to the left in order to ensure that their is only one non-zero digit in front of the decimal point. Step 3: Therefore, 14,000,000,000=$1.4\times10^{10}$.
