Battery capacity = 2900mAh = 2900*10^-3 AhCurrent drawn = 0.2mA = 0.2*10^-3 AHence, time for wich this current can be deliverd = 2900*10^-3/0.2*10^-3 = 14500 hrs Ans.This is ideal time but actual time will be less because of losses due to resistance etc.Kindly rate the answer.

Thank you for the answer, it seems specific enough - but could you possibly estimate an approximate and reasonable margin for allowance of the increase in the battery internal resistance ?
Expert:  akch2002 replied 1 year ago.
It depends on the design of the battery and operating conditions. It may vary from 50% to 90%, that is, actual time will vary from 7250 hrs to 13050 hrs.
