I may be completely wrong but I'm slightly confued about this - is it true that we can apply quantum mechanics to a macromolecular scale, but can't apply classical to an atomic level? If so, why don't we use quantum mechanics to solve everything and abolish classical theory which is apparently "outdated"?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks in advance.
