If you installed Lightroom using the Adobe installer and without
changing the default setting, the Lightroom application will be in the
Mac OS X path
"/Applications/Adobe Lightroom 3.app"

Adobe Camera Raw is a plugin located in different places depending on
which version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements you have installed.
It is not used by Lightroom at all. Lightroom's raw processing engine
is organized internally within the Lightroom application bundle and
only updated with updates to the Lightroom application.
