    If you are the sole administrator of OSX on your computer the applications are stored in the Hard drive> Applications folder.

    There won't be any applications in the Lion HD > Users > User>Home>applications folder.

    Can't you right click on the Applications icon on your dock and "Open Applications"? You should then be able to find out where it is.

    Normally the Applications folder that is in your Dock is the one at the root level of your hard drive. To see it, open up your Hard Drive (not your Home folder) and you should see something like:

    Applications
    Library
    System
    User Guides And Information
    Users

    That Applications folder is the one where all Applications (for all users) lives and is the one that's in the Dock. Sometimes a user will have an Applications folder in their Home folder but it will only contain Applications that are specific to that user and generally is not the one that is in the Dock.
