Abstract

We present measurements of branching fractions and charge asymmetries for the decays B ->eta K-*, where K-* indicates a spin 0, 1, or 2 K pi system. The data sample corresponds to 344x10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider at SLAC. We measure the branching fractions (in units of 10(-6)): B(B-0 ->eta K-*0(892))=16.5 +/- 1.1 +/- 0.8, B(B+->eta K*+(892))=18.9 +/- 1.8 +/- 1.3, B(B-0 ->eta(K pi)(0)(*0))=11.0 +/- 1.6 +/- 1.5, B(B+->eta(K pi)(0)(*+))=18.2 +/- 2.6 +/- 2.6, B(B-0 ->eta K-2(*0)(1430))=9.6 +/- 1.8 +/- 1.1, and B(B+->eta K-2(*+)(1430))=9.1 +/- 2.7 +/- 1.4. We also determine the charge asymmetries for all decay modes.
