Abstract: Observations with modern radio telescopes have revealed that classical novae are far from the simple, spherically symmetric events they were once assumed to be. It is now understood that novae provide excellent laboratories to study several astrophysical properties including binary interactions, stellar outflows, and shock physics. The ngVLA will provide unprecedented opportunities to study these events. It will enable us to observe more distant and fainter novae than we can today. It will allow us to simultaneously resolve both the thermal and non-thermal components in the ejecta. Finally, monitoring novae with the ngVLA will reveal the evolution of the ejecta in better detail than is possible with any current instrument.
