No, the answer for a=subs(f,[x],2) should be 8. Calculating diff(f) makes no difference to the value you find by substituting something into f.

What is the context for that? It does not appear to be general Cartesian coordinates: it appears to be the expression in Cartesian coordinates of something like a wave function or a rotation.
