for some reason when i use gradient function over a vector the scale get lowerd for example of sin function: the maximum is divided by 10 and in other cases the maximum is divided by something else

you have to divide by the time step. For instance, this gives you what you want
dt=0.1;
t=-2*pi:dt:2*pi;
subplot(3,1,1)
plot(t,sin(t))
subplot(3,1,2)
plot(t,gradient(sin(t),dt))
subplot(3,1,3)
plot(t(1:end-1),diff(sin(t))/dt)
