 The orientationally ordered structure in C60 crystal under various pressures has been investigated by using the model of classical molecular interaction. The energy difference and the energy barrier between two orientations obtained have been developed to study the pressure dependence of the occupation probability of two orientations and glassy transition temperature in thermal equilibrium. The result is in agreement with the experimental one.
