I suspect it depends on the problem. Do you have a specific problem you were referring to?

The problem is not with me it's with scientists they have many unsolved probkems in classical physics like turbulenceI suspect it depends on the problem. Do you have a specific problem you were referring to?

What do you think the issue is in "solving" the problem of turbulence?

As an engineer you won't believe it, but mathematicians are still struggling to show that the Navier-Stokes equations have solutions at all.What do you think the issue is in "solving" the problem of turbulence?

So we have unsolved problems that can be solved with only classical mechanics ? Do you know any ?

A quick google search finds the problem referred to by DrDuSo we have unsolved problems that can be solved with only classical mechanics ? Do you know any ?

I don't know what you mean by *only* classical mechanics- presumably you mean something like "macroscopic, room-temperature, slow processes"? Just be aware that many of these problems also occur in microscopic, low-temperature, rapidly changing systems as well.

There's a bunch besides those already mentioned: wetting (contact line motion), the glass transition (dynamic heterogeneity), and nonequilibrium thermodynamics (for example, the dynamics of soft matter) complete my favorite 5.
