Measurements of two-body branching ratios for p̄p annihilations at rest in liquid and gaseous (12ρSTP) hydrogen are reported. Channels studied are p̄p→π0π00η, K0SK0L, K+K-. The branching ratio for the π0π0 channel in liquid H2 is measured to be (6.14±0.40)×10-4. The results are compared with those from other experiments. The fraction of P-state annihilation for a range of target densities from 0.002ρSTP to liquid H2 is determined. Values obtained include 0.11±0.02 in liquid H2 and 0.48±0.04 in 12ρSTP H2 gas.
