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.

8 is correct. f = x^3, and 2^3 is 8.

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.
